Vine Street facing north toward Hollywood Blvd corner, circa mid-1930s

Vine Street facing north toward Hollywood Blvd corner, circa 1940sI don’t know when this photo was taken, but I’m guessing 1940s. We’re on Vine Street here, looking north to the Hollywood Boulevard corner. On the right is the Brown Derby and past that the Taft Building, which held the offices of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences from 1935 to 1945. On the left we can see the Plaza Hotel which at one point housed the It Café owned by the It Girl herself, Clara Bow (more pics on that at http://wp.me/p5XK3w-o3 )

Daniel Nauman says: This was taken sometime before mid-1938, when KNX moved to the new Columbia Square on Sunset.

Andie Paysinger says: The car in the right lane is a 1938 Ford Coupe.

One Response to Vine Street facing north toward Hollywood Blvd corner, circa mid-1930s

  1. Hi – this pic brings back so many memories of times spent: Y&R in Taft Building (worked there 1951-1954); shopped at the Broadway and of course the countless times spent at the Brown Derby; the El Capitan theater (live performances) & the Pantages Theater (on Hollywood Blvd). Thank you my friend for bringing it all back to me. Love always, L
