This circa 1932 bird’s-eye view of the Santa Monica shoreline was taken north of Castellammare Drive, which is not far from the “Inceville” photo I posted recently where Sunset Blvd meets the Pacific. It looks so peaceful, doesn’t it? One or two shacks dotted along the sand, and space to park pretty much anywhere you want. They’ve even got a walkway over Route 1 (Pacific Coast Hwy now.) The view from the house being built on the right must have been lovely.
