Hollywood Riviera in the 1950’s – Step Back in Time

july1951calledemadrid-2.jpg

This is a photo taken in July 1951 on Calle de Madrid – a street at the top of the Riviera (also considered the “Upper Hollywood Riviera.”)  It’s super cool – check out the cars!  The man who took the photo was amazed at how you used to be able to see views from so many places in the Riviera before all the trees grew up!  The trees in this photo are around 3 years old…as the homes in this photo were mostly built around 1948.  I am going to post a picture of this same spot as soon as the next clear day comes around so we can compare the views then vs. now.  Love the “woody” in the background!
