Wilshire Boulevard at dusk, Los Angeles, 1959

Wilshire Boulevard at dusk, Los Angeles, 1959In this photo taken of Wilshire Blvd at dusk in 1959, we can see the column at the end of the Ambassador Hotel driveway, and the neon signs for the Brown Derby and the Chapman Park Hotel. A little way off in the distance we can see the tower of the church on Normandie, which is the only one of those places that still survives today.

One Response to Wilshire Boulevard at dusk, Los Angeles, 1959

  1. Hi – are you aware of the Derby in Bev, Hills? Just off Wilshire. We ate there often as it was close to where we lived. Never was as famous as the Vine St. or original one but the food was super. Love, Lou.
