I wonder what is in the distance on the left that looks like the top of a drive-in movie screen.

Actually it not Glendale but Atwater. The big building in the background is Forest Lawn Glendale.

Looks to me like we are seeing Glendale, with the photographer standing just outside its border with
Atwater--where the tracks in the foreground cross those of the Red Cars--hence the GLENDALE sign.
Glendale Boulevard is now depressed under the crossing tracks.

A view from the bus.

"Original Slide Los Angeles Chautauqua Blvd to CA-1 Pacific Coast Hwy 1959"

I have fond memories of this strange little area. As I've mentioned before, my good friend lived on Hillside Lane off Rustic road. We'd park at her house and walk down Chautauqua to the beach.

little has change








I've been trying to read the sign in the distance on the left (below red arrow)

And what's in the front yard of that house? It looks like the beginnings of a tee-pee.


The house is still there with moderate changes.

And here's a closer look at the buildings on the right.

And today

I know the buildings have appeared in the background of a film noir but I can't recall which movie. (I'll try to find it)

update:

The movie was 'In A Lonely Place' (1950)



This is the building on the corner. You'll recognize it in the 1959 detail.

I realize she's using the hat as shade, but wearing black makes you hotter.
