You sure know a lot about everything on Hollywood Blvd. -- do you happen to know of any photos showing the front of Coffee Dan's near Highland?

Also, in one of my directory searches they had a Coffee Dan's listed at 6405 Hollywood Blvd., which is near, or at, Cahuenga. I've never seen any photos at all of that location in Hollywood.

These addresses may have been from the 1956 directory, I didn't notate it.
1511 North Vine St. HO4-2290
6405 Hollywood Blvd. HO4-8449
6776 Hollywood Blvd. HO4-0667

That Coffee Dan's at 6776! I have seen no good pictures showing the front. Nobody seems to have taken a picture of it on purpose! It was a 2-story building with offices above and retail on the ground floor, Dan's being in the space closest to Highland. It originally had a tile roof, but seems to have gotten a late moderne makeover. There were two fires there while it was Dan's, in April and July 1957 so maybe that had something to do with it. The space became a McDonald's in 1987. We've seen most of the intersection views of it already. I found a couple that may be repeats but I don't remember on NLA before, on that nice LA theater history site, https://sites.google.com/site/hollyw...tres/hollywood:

Color view, day with Dan's hiding next to the brown Bank of America building.

Similar view c. 1943 before Dan's. It's the white building, tile roof.

Glimpse of its roof sign, and a closer view of the building 1957

I don't have any photos or info about Dan at 6405. All I know is that address housed the Hollywood ticket office for The Pacific Steamship Co., then it was Santa Fe Railroad's ticket office from 1930 until 1949 when they moved to 1551 Vine St (not far from the Vine St. Dan's), the space that once briefly housed La Conga nightblub, 1938-41. So Dan could've gone in to 6405 after that. I'm more or less a bonehead about 50s-60s Hollywood.

This is the building, anyway.

an earlier view c. 1937.

I agree! And E-R as well for posting all those wonderful color shots in the first place.

He shared a daytime view of this same intersection back in 2011, when he was still practically a child:

Macy's Jewelry Store was first class, with credit accounts kept on a Rolodex, not unlike William Stromberg across the street near Wilcox. The KFWB disc jockeys in the photo, and others (B. Mitchell Reed and Gary Owens) used to hang out at Coffee Dan's across the street and at Aldo's near by. The Coffee Dan's at Highland was a favorite of Hollywood High Students after 3:10 pm.
