Westwood Blvd, Westwood, California, circa 1950s

Westwood Blvd, Westwood, California, circa 1950sThis shot of was taken near where Westwood Blvd meets Kinross Ave. It was taken on what looks like a typically clear-skied Angeleno day, circa 1950s. That striking Bank of America building on the left is still there, albeit minus its soaring tower. It’s now the Yamato Restaurant. Out of curiosity, I looked up the “Bette Wales” store on the far right, and found her listed as “Fashions ladies sportswear.” (And no, Betty’s no longer there.)

  1. The Westwood Village I knew and loved. Thank you my dear friend for sharing this memory with me. Love, L

  2. Dear Martin: the last time I was in Westwood was when my son Mark graduated from UCLA; He spent his entire working life at Raytheon and now is retired and busier than ever. Love, L

    I grew up in “the village” during the 60’s/70’s and Westwood/UCLA were my back yard. Kirk Drug lasted until the early 80’s and then became a Millers Outpost. They had a great fountain and coffee shop. At the time that Stretch of Westwood Blvd had 5 drug stores from Lindbrook to Le Conte.
