This is an oil of downtown L.A. Specifically, old Bunker Hill in the final stages of decay at the Second Street tunnel. It was done in the mid-sixties when urban renewal had started and the old, turn-of-the-19th-century mansions that had decorated the hill were being torn down or removed.
This was one of a series of oil paintings Hulett created for a large art exhibit at the Occidental Building in downtown Los Angeles. His day job at this time was painting backgrounds for Jungle Book.
