This is actually a close up of a larger photo showing the 8000 block of Santa Monica Blvd in 1933. I was struck by two things: look at the wonderful art deco detailing above the doorway of Olins & Sons Draperies! Also, the store next to Olins is the “Fearless Camera Co. & Cinema Sound Co.” I wonder what made them fearless. Did the go where regular camera operators feared to tread?
This is the larger photo, reminding us that Santa Monica once had tracks running down the middle of it.
