Newsstand at the corner of Hollywood and Vine, circa 1940s

Newsstand at the corner of Hollywood and Vine, circa 1940sHere in this one photo taken at the corner of Hollywood and Vine we have a number of things we no longer see: the corner newspaper stand; the semaphore traffic light; a sailor walking around the city streets; a guy in a fedora; the Melody Lane diner on the northwest corner; the misspelling of the word “thoroughly” on a billboard; and a motorist patiently waiting for a pedestrian to cross Vine Street. In fact, the only thing in this shot that’s still there is the Hotel Knickerbocker building, which is now a retirement home.
