Bird’s eye view of Hollywood facing north, 1932

Bird’s eye view of Hollywood facing north, 1932This photo gives us a rare bird’s eye view of Hollywood in 1932. That main thoroughfare on the right is Highland Ave, and we can see it stretching north toward the Hollywood Boulevard intersection. The tall building on the far right is the First National Bank of Hollywood, and we can also see the Hollywood United Methodist Church. The large building on the left is the Roosevelt Hotel. And they’re all still standing! Hollywood is still heavy with trees, but the hills are only lightly dotted with houses—I only counted eleven of them!

    Another pic I really like and one that makes me wish I was back in Hollywood during the ’30s. Love seeing the trees. Wonder what that medium-tall white building with two dark squares (windows?) just slightly off-center in the hills is?

    Thanks, Martin.
