Looking west down Wilshire Blvd. in 1928.
The Brown Derby, which opened in 1926, is clearly visible on the lower right hand side.

It's amazing to see the plethora of billboards.
The billboard at lower left (which I believe is in front of the Ambassador Hotel) advertises the movie 'Four Sons' 1928.
