Rodeo Dr, Beverly Hills, 1937

Rodeo Dr, Beverly Hills, 1937This 1937 photograph of Rodeo Drive (at, I presume) the Dayton Way corner) in Beverly Hills shows us that before a dividing strip was put down the middle of Rodeo Dr. there was enough room for front-in parking. And back then, before Rodeo Dr. became the chic in-spot to shop, you could probably find street parking without too much hair-pulling-out. The drivers of those cars in this photo didn’t know how good they had it!

That same corner in 2016:

    Beautiful shot, Martin. I’ll take the white coupe!

    When was the last time Rodeo Drive was as empty as this pic taken in 1937?
