I happened upon this photograph of a newspaper stand a few days ago on ebay.


"1932 Photo HOLLYWOOD LOS ANGELES NEWSSTAND Weird Tales TARZAN Times STOREFRONT"


eBay

I believe this is the outdoor newstand on Las Palmas Ave. just south of Hollywood Blvd.

I'm confused by the Native American advertising Bromo-Seltzer.

I believe the small cloth on top of the register is being used to block the sun from numbers on the register.






Postcards and an advertisement for Cosmopolitan.



I think those little heads are movie stars. I wish we could tell who they are.

AFC?
