In 1924 Victor Girard (1880-1954) opened a real estate office on what is now Topanga Canyon and Ventura Boulevard and built a mosque-like gate to his 2886-acre subdivision named Girard. He graded the streets, set aside land for parks and schools, and planted thousands of trees.
In 1941 to community's name was changed to Woodland Hills.

The two little bungalows, connected by the entrance arch, at Prospect and Talmadge (right of center, at bottom) are still there of course.
Sorry it's so huge, but the detail is fascinating:

Three extras actually drowned here during the filming of Noah's Ark (1928). John Wayne
and Andy Devine, also working as extras on the film, obviously escaped.

Mystery apartments?

1932 - "The Pierce Apartments," per source. Address not provided. (There was a Pierce Apts. at 444 S Hope, but this looks out of place.?? Pierce mentioned here: http://skyscraperpage.com/forum/show...ostcount=21008)

Makes it easier for Doug Fairbanks, or his stunt double, to ascend. As pondered in another post, I wonder about the building's original color or colors, especially those contrasting shapes near the sidewalk.

Curiously, the source [mis]identifies this building as "Mayan Apartments and Shops."
