The Mariachi Hotel in 1956

The Mariachi Hotel in Boyle Heights as it appeared in this 1956 Los Angeles Times photo. Even then, this 1889 structure at the corner of First Street and Boyle Avenue was way past its prime. It might regain some of its original beauty thanks to a $22.8 million rehab into affordable housing.
