Northwest corner of Hollywood and Vine, circa late 1940s

Northwest corner of Hollywood and Vine, circa WWIII love this photo for showing us a slice of life on Hollywood Boulevard. This is the corner of Hollywood and Vine as seen from under the awning of the Melody Lane restaurant on the north west corner. Behind those people in the middle is The Broadway Hollywood department store and farther off into the background, we can see the distinctive sign for the Brown Derby.

    Martin, like you, I love these slice-of-life old Hollywood pics. That couple in the middle seem to realize they are part of having this corner’s picture taken. Wonder if they were visiting movieland and on their way down the street to the Brown Derby? Maybe the sailors were too.

    I had to crack up when I read the lettering on the trash receptacle. Why else would it be placed there – certainly not for the passing motorists!

    I’ll bet Louella has a lot of memories of this busy corner.
