Cool pics! That one of Hollywood and Vine in 1965 really shows that Hollywood Blvd. was already going down the tubes at that point, it already looks rundown, even though they tried to jazz it up with the weird 3-light streetlamps and the Walk of Fame stars on the sidewalk.

that's why I was confused about the other sign with Wilshire on the brim.
Perhaps it's a later sign.
I think you're right; in my subsequent searches for images of the Brown Derby I saw pics of the original hat-shaped restaurant with the sign that says "Wilshire" on it.
