Max Factor Building, 1660 N. Highland, Hollywood, CA, 1944

Max Factor Building, 1660 N. Highland, Hollywood, CA, 1944I always find it heartwarming to find a photo of an LA building from back in the day and can think “Hey, it almost still looks the same.” And it’s especially heartwarming when it’s something with both curb appeal AND history. Makeup maestro Max Factor opened his 4-story Art Deco salon at 1660 N. Highland Ave in 1935. Here it is in 1944, and below, I’ll post a photo of what it looks like now. The building currently houses the Hollywood Museum, which is well worth the visit if you’re in the area.
