    I discovered this fantastic site after stumbling upon a cascade of photos depicting the decline of the Rochester in the LAPL.
    I couldn’t help but google to unearth the fate of a dwelling so compelling as to warrant the extreme effort of many.

  9. Summaries from top left, to right and down:
    The Rochester Apartments, a converted older residence behind storefronts, in 1970, located on West Temple Street in the 1000 block.

    From private residence to boarding house to disreputable hotel to a flop house which should have been torn down; such has been the fate of Rochester House, seen in this interior view. Now it is to be moved to a new location. Photo date: September 16, 1970.

    A bent and battered “No Trespassing” sign is mounted outside the once stately Rochester House, being moved on September 18, 1970, from its original site at 1012 West Temple Street, now part of the Temple Urban Renewal Project.

    Rochester House, shortly after the start of its journey to a new site, ran into problems while making a right turn from Golden to Court Street on October 1, 1970. The side of the house brushed a power pole, loosening a shower of sparks and bringing down a primary high-tension wire. The operation drew scores of neighborhood residents and other interested citizens. A good time was had by all.

    A “Save Me” sign is still mounted on the Rochester House as it is being moved due to the Temple Urban Renewal Project. Photo date: October 1, 1970.

    The large, historically important Rochester House as it sits at its temporary location in the 1100 block of North Alameda Street on October 1, 1970, after being moved from its former location on Temple Street.

    Final Note:
    The temporary relocation became permanent.
    For reasons unknown the Rochester was left to decay beyond repair at the Alameda/Bruno site until it was demolished in 1979.
