Hollywood Blvd near Vine St showing Broadway department store and I. Magnins, early 1930sOne of the buildings that dominated the Hollywood skyline was the popular The Broadway department store. You can see it—or its huge neon sign—in most photos of Hollywood in the 30s and 40s. But what I like about this shot (early 1930s) is that we can see how the neighboring stores (including I. Magnin before it moved to Wilshire Blvd) are all housed in an interesting variety architectural styles, with all sorts of roof lines and window shapes. It’s a far cry from the generic boxy type stores we tend to see these days.
