Parking lot for the Brown Derby, Broadway department store, and Al Levy’s Vine St, Hollywood, 1938

Parking lot for the Brown Derby, Broadway department store, and Al Levy's Vine St, Hollywood, 1938To me, this photo says “Night on the town in 1938” – a parking lot, a block south of the Hollywood and Vine corner where people could park for the Brown Derby, Broadway department store, and Al Levy’s (a popular tavern in the 30s and 40s, which would later become Mike Lymon’s Hollywood Grill.) I’m buying the first round – care to join me?

  1. Dear Martin: Was SO good talking with you yesterday and I am SO happy your great works are being acknowledged. I am very proud to know you and to be able to call you my friend. Love you always, Lou.

  2. PS: I had no idea that the corner of Hollywood & Vine would be so well remembered 65 years later; at the time it was just where I went to work every day. One highlight was looking North and watching the Hollywood Freeway being built. Another was looking West and watching the Capitol Records going up. I am so grateful to you for keeping these memories alive. Best wishes, Louella Ettinger Rehfield.
