Hollywood Blvd. and Vermont Ave., pedestrian safety zone for streetcar, 1937

Looks like you can see Barnsdall Art Park (may have still been known as "Olive Hill" then) in the background; is this the side facing Hollywood blvd? It kind of looks like where the gates/parking lot are now. If that's correct, then the building in the photo isn't there anymore, but the foundations still are. The Hollyhock House still stands (and has been restored; they regularly give tours of it).

their website isn't incredibly informative, but the wikipedia article is

Imagine that; a hill in Los Angeles (East Hollywood) that was allowed to remain standing!

Was alerted to this thread by @LAhistory on twitter, have been absorbed in it ever since. Great photos and info! Will definitely be checking back.
