The Academy Awards at the Pantages Theatre, Hollywood, 1951:

The fans across the street:

Hollywood and Western, early 1950s

Grauman's Chinese Theatre, 1954

Echo Park, 1950s

The PE streetcars went in between houses in Hollywood in private rights-of-way...

If you drive to Sunset and Gardner now, where the Moun of Tunis Moroccan restaurant is, you can see the old diagonal right-of-way, which is now a driveway to the parking lot of the Moun of Tunis restaurant.


Sunset and Gardner:

At Gardner St.:

Santa Monica Blvd. and Palm, West Hollywood:

Same location, but much earlier, probably early 1920s; the south side of Santa Monica Blvd. hadn't been built yet (wasn't built until 1928), so two-way traffic went on the north side of the PE tracks:
