Los Angeles in Los Angeles County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
El Pueblo de Los Angeles
With the advent of the Mexican market place on Olvera Street in 1930, the uses of the Machine Shop were changed and the front doors were opened on Olvera Street, rather than Main Street. The first tenant was the "Leo Carrillo Theatre," followed by the "Olvera Street Puppet Theatre." The proscenium arch and segment of the stage still survive.
