Scenes of L.A. during WWII: Hollywood and Highland


street scene showing bank and theater marquee

Evidently this is a photo of Hollywood Boulevard at the intersection of Highland Boulevard, circa 1942. The Hollywood Theater (on the right), at 6764 Hollywood Boulevard, now houses the Guinness World of Records Museum. Though it's not evident in this photo, the bank building on the left was the tallest structure in Los Angeles from 1927 until the completion of L.A.'s City Hall in 1932. The bank building, now home to Hollywood First National Bank, was designed by Meyer & Holler, the architects of Grauman's Chinese Theatre.
