Ocean Ave, Santa Monica beach, circa 1950

Ocean Ave, Santa Monica beach, circa 1950Don’t we all wish Ocean Ave along Santa Monica beach still looked like it does in this circa 1950 photo? In the 20 years I’ve lived here, I’ve never been there when it hasn’t been thronging with people…which is great for people watching, but not so great for strolling.

    Don’t we all wish ALL of Hollywood/Los Angeles still looked like it did in the first half of the last century?! I know I sure do.

    This pic of Santa Monica is just gorgeous. How ’bout this one from the ’30s – one car on the road!
