Fletcher Bowron was the mayor of Los Angeles from 1938 to 1953. I guess he’s in some parade down Hollywood Boulevard (probably the Christmas parade?) but to me, that’s the least interesting part of this photo. Check out that car! Those two-toned tires! And “All the King’s Men” (1949) playing at the Pantages. And equally amazing is the fact that the Frolic Room bar is still there!
