Here's the bridge in 1953. At the time it was still the only bridge over Olympic in this area.

It looks like the bridge was still there in 1980, but the area to the north had been cleared. Just to the east is the much wider Avenue of the Stars.

The tower that now stands at southern end of the old bridge location (the base of which is visible at the top of Joe Gillis's aerial picture) is Fox Plaza, better known to fans of 'Die Hard' as Nakatomi Plaza.
