Looking west along Sunset Blvd, between N. Carolwood and Delfern Drive, early 1920sTo give you an idea of how out-there-in-the-middle-of-nowhere an unpaved Sunset Boulevard was back in the ‘20s—and this stretch of Sunset is through Beverly Hills!—this is how it looked between Carolwood and Delfern, where apparently the only thing to see were three lonesome palm trees.

    Just think how much development took place from the time that pic was taken to just 10 years later into the beloved ’30s !

    Constance Bennett had a twenty-room home at 280 N. Carolwood Drive. It’s still there and last sold for $9,250,00 in 1990. The article below states it was built in 1937, but Google realty searches state 1935.

    Thanks as always, Martin!

    Ooops – left a zero off – sold for $9,250,000 !

    But it was built for only $37,000 – today you couldn’t build an outhouse for that! haha
