C.T. Moore Fire Extinguisher Co.

The fire extinguisher co. building is gone, but it's next door neighbor is still there.

You can tell by the two horizontal lines that appear in both the vintage postcard and the GSV photo.

I just came across a rather remarkable 1965 video.


There's Henry Fonda smoking while getting a haircut by Jay Sebring (who was murdered by the Manson family in 1969),
a look inside the offices of the William Morris Agency, a rally for the Hollywood Museum that was never built,
a quick glimpse of Schwab's at night.....etc....etc.

All this narrated by Joseph Cotton.

CLICK HERE to see the video.

Video: Jay Sebring's funeral.

It's surprising how intrusive the media is. At the beginning a camera man zeros in on an attractive woman's derriere. (this was my Dad's trick in our home 8mm movies)



To see the video click here.

Fourth street name is "Willard." In the mass-renaming, Willard became Kingsley Drive, so the block bounded by Crown, Prospect, Willard, and Sunset became the block bounded by Harvard, Hollywood, Kingsley, and Sunset.
