Garden Court Apartments, 7021 Hollywood Blvd, 1937

Garden Court Apartments, 7021 Hollywood Blvd, 1937For most of the first half of the 20th century, the standard for high-class apartment living was set by the Garden Court Apartments, which opened at 7021 Hollywood Blvd., on New Year’s Eve, 1919. It was the classiest address in town. In this 1937 photo, we can also see the adjacent tennis courts—this was a time when Hollywood Boulevard was still residential, and finding a park on the street not too much of a problem.

  1. Isn’t this beautiful? Last time I was in that area was probably 45 years ago.However in the 40’s and early 50’s, the area west of Highland on Hollywood Blvd was a splendid area: my cousin Maggie Ettinger lived there; Johnny Engstead and Gail Patrick lived next door. Charles Laughton and Elsa Lancester had a lovely home & I got to see his collection of Pre-Columbian art + a Dufy painting. Special memories.

    Oh, my goodness, this is how I envision Hollywood in its heyday. Big white buildings and of course palm trees and always the “timely” cars. I lived on the western end of Hollywood Blvd. in the early ’80s and worked for a very brief time at a big office building on the corner of Hollywood and La Brea. Walked to and from work with my head full of thoughts how this area must have looked back in the ’30s and ’40s. My end of Hollywood Blvd. as Louella said was and still is residential. Love these old photos! Jean
