Ah…I do enjoy finding a Kodachrome photo of LA! And for some reason, a high proportion of the ones I see are taken around the corner of Sunset and Vine. Looking north up Vine, we can see the ABC studios, the Plaza Hotel (where Clara Bow’s It Café was located in the late 30s), the Broadway department store, the Taft Building (where the Academy had offices), the Brown Derby, and the NBC radio studios. Seeing this in vivid color makes the era seem so much more real. At least, it does for someone like me, for whom this time lives in black-and-white photos and my imagination.
