    I am glad to see that the building is still there.

    Looks like the same fire hydrant, too. Reassuring to see that some things haven’t changed much after more than three-quarters of a century…especially in LA.

    Nice photos. Thanks for sharing your treasures.

  4. Harry Martin says:

    Now that is too cool!

    And kudos for getting the exact same perspective — that’s always been one of my pet peeves with the “Hollywood Then and Now” book. I love being able to compare then and now directly.

    I am so loving the Christmas tree on the lampost, too!

  5. Love this stuff! Thanks, Allan!

    That buidling was used for the Zimm Films location in ‘Get Shorty’.

    I love that the buildings down the street, look the same too and are still there.

    Bet you didn’t know that there is a Whitley Building in Disney’s California Adventure on the corner of Hollywood and Sunset Blvd. You might check it out. It is patterned after this building.
