Aerial view of Westwood village, Los Angeles, circa 1929

Aerial view of Westwood village, Los Angeles, circa 1929In this aerial shot we can see the beginnings of Westwood village. What’s heartwarming is that at least two of those buildings are still around—the tower on the left and the domed building near the center. This photo is circa 1929, which the year UCLA moved to Westwood onto land that was once called the Wolfskill Rancho. That’s all the empty space at the top of this photo.

  1. Oh Martin! Thank you for posting this photo, which takes me right back there. The tower on the left is the Fox Theatre, where I spent every Saturday afternoon & the ice rink (not yet built) was to the left of the Fox. The other building at the apex of the triangle was a bank, and, yes, UCLA opened in 1929. Such a fabulous village – still great when we moved out in 1942. Love always, Lou.
