One of my favorite old theaters was the Fox Carthay Circle Theater.

You can find a brief history here. http://www.neighborhoodlink.com/la/c...146343341.html

The theater was part of a development begun in 1921.
Below is an advertisement for the area then known as Carthay Center.

To be honest, I'm a bit confused about the streets or I would have labeled them.




Below is a great postcard.
