A beautiful twilight photograph of Hollywood & Vine (looking north on vine).

I was surprised by the over-sized Miller High Life Beer sign atop the Taft Building. I don't recall very many photos with this Miller sign.
At ground level on the right is the complex that housed the Vine Street Brown Derby.



below: Here is another view with the towering Miller sign, along with a pretty impressive 'Hotel PLAZA' sign.
'The Broadway Hollywood' sign is of course iconic and still in place (thank God).

Notice the large presence of Western Air Lines in the Vine Street Brown Derby complex on the right.
On the opposite side of the street, the CBS Vine Street Theater is undergoing some type of renovation.
