    I’m afraid you’ve mistaken the St. Francis Hotel for St. Marks, which was between Speedway and OFW. It was destroyed by the city of L.A. code enforcers despite the efforts of its owners to save it. There was a “bridge of sighs” over Speedway which connected it to the St. Francis, which acted as an annex to St. Marks.
