Sunset Blvd looking west with Garden of Allah villas on the left and Chateau Marmont on the right, circa mid 1930sI’ve been researching and writing about the Garden of Allah Hotel for more than ten years now, so it isn’t often that a new photo surfaces—but it IS exciting! We’re looking west along Sunset Blvd from Crescent Heights Blvd. On the left we can clearly see the ‘Garden of Allah – Villas” sign—it’s actually more striking than I pictured. As Sunset curves around to the left, on the right we can see the Chateau Marmont Hotel, which went up a year or two after the Garden of Allah, and which is still around today. The license plate on the rear of the car in the right foreground is probably from 1936, so can date this photo to circa mid 1930s.

    Oh, if it only still looked like this! Love how you can see the Chateau Marmont driveway and of course the Garden of Allah’s sign. So inviting!

    Thanks, Martin.
