Wallichs Music City on the northwest corner of Vine and Sunset, Hollywood, circa late 1940sOpening in 1940 on the corner of Sunset and Vine, Wallichs Music City became THE place to buy all the latest records, and listen to them in the booths. You could also by sheet music, instruments and, later TV sets. From 1946 to 1956, Capitol Records occupied the second floor until they moved into the Capitol Records building. The light-colored sedan at the intersection is a 1947 Studebaker, so I assume this photo is circa late 1940s.

    omg Martin! You can’t imagine how many hours each of us skating teachers spent trying to find music for our competitive skaters, and then cutting the music to the required length. And watching the (round) Capitol Records building go up on Hollywood Blvd. Hope you & Bob are enjoying the rain, love always, L&M.
