Also seen is a Pacific Electric 'Red Car' and an early two-seat electric car. There is also a nice barn behind the house.

I couldn't resist including a close-up of this marvelous Queen-Anne House. Notice the highly unusual porte cochere on the left side of the house.
I don't think I've ever seen an open-air 'room' built atop a porte cochere before.

This building was removed, brick by brick in the late 90s to make room for a baseball field at the new Belmont Highschool / Vista Hermosa / Roybal Learning Center

Photograph of buildings covered in grafitti on Sunset Boulevard, 1981. In the right foreground, a boarded-up brick building is covered in grafitti, some of which reads "13" and "Shorty". To the left, buildings that look like tract housing are also covered with writing. In the left distance, a skyscraper is under construction on Bunker Hill, while the County Health Department building is visible.

Photograph of an exterior view of the old Los Angeles County Hall of Records as seen from the west portico of City Hall, October 1, 1972. The Hall of Records is at center and is a large, light-colored building that splits into two sections halfway up to the top. Large rectangular windows line the perimeter of the building, and decorative molding can be seen near the top of the structure. A large building with hundreds of small windows can be seen at left. In the foreground, the tiled ceiling of the portico can be seen, along with several supporting columns.

This has to be a reverse print. When looking out the west portico of City Hall, the Hall of Records would be point to the right, not the left, and the new Criminal Courts building is also to the right of the old Hall of Records. I was just there Monday and took a picture out the west Portico as well. Here's another link to my collection: https://plus.google.com/photos/10587...57782495364385

I checked out your photographs and they're wonderful alanlutz!

Have you tried posting them directly to the thread? More often than not visitors to the thread don't bother with links.
If you have any questions let me know...I'm more than willing to help.

Right. A window to the future.
One day the Sunset Strip might well become a casaba melon patch.
Man...I didn't see that one coming. Who'd have thought?

1947, Tom Breneman's (revisiting a topic from 2009)

http://la.remap.ucla.edu/remappingla...serialNumber=3Remapping-LA

Thomas Breneman Smith (June 18, 1901 – April 28, 1948) was a popular 1940s American radio personality known to his listeners as Tom Breneman.

Born in Waynesboro, Pennsylvania, Breneman was host of the show Breakfast in Hollywood which aired on the Blue Network, ABC, NBC and Mutual at various times from 1941 to 1948.[1]

Breneman's program went through numerous title changes but was best known as Breakfast in Hollywood (1948-49). By the mid-1940s, Breneman had ten million listeners. The popularity of the radio program was such that he created his own magazine, and in 1945 he opened his own establishment, Tom Breneman's Restaurant, located on Vine Street off Sunset Boulevard.[1]

He died in Encino, California in 1948. Breneman has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
