Herbert’s Drive-In, corner of Beverly Blvd & Fairfax Ave, Los Angeles, circa mid-1940s

Herbert’s Drive-In, corner of Beverly Blvd & Fairfax Ave, Los Angeles, circa mid-1940sThis place must have really been something to see in person. This is Herbert’s Drive-In, which stood at the corner of Beverly Blvd & Fairfax Ave. This was taken in some time around the end of WWII—with all that wonderful neon lighting, it must have been a sight to see!

    Love these slice-of-Hollywood life pics! The first one looks like a scene out of a noir movie. Love how that soft lighting bathes the back fender of one of the cars.

    Here’s a little more interesting info on this wonderful drive-in restaurant:

  2. What ever happened to Drive-In’s? They were such a blast. I frequented Dolores Drive In (on Wilshire and – I think – La Cienega) almost daily after high school. The current crop of fast food places just don’t work. I often would like to get something to eat without getting out of my car and no such luck.
    I would vote for someone whose plank included Get rid of Daylight Savings (WW I has been over for 100 years) and bring back Drive-In restaurants (and movie theaters too). Fondly. L
