The Las Palmas Hotel is at 1738 N Las Palmas and was seen in Pretty Woman. Perhaps the raid was there. However, the Selma Manor was at 6526 Selma...

6526 Selma Ave is no more.
He seems rather comfortable and unconcerned, she not so. Definitely a Lucky Strikes kind of guy.

Just wanted to say...

This is just about the best discussion thread I have EVER read online- and that goes back 30 years! I'm WAY behind- just finished page 140 a moment ago- but that's okay.

I didn't live in L.A. long, but the historical pics and other stuff here is simply fantastic. Thanks for many hours of fun reading this, and for many more hours ahead. I didn't have much to contribute yet (just some old LA radio pictures a while back) but I hope I get to do so again.

Incredible thread!!!

I came across this postcard by accident while searching google images the other day.


http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo...s33s0UouyK9atw



There is no address, but I recognized the gazebo from google street views.
see below:






below: This small enclave of homes just off Cahuenga Blvd. is named The Hollywood Dell.

This particular house is located at 6533 Cahuenga Terrace.

...can't leave out the gazebo.

Hollywood Dell
The generally accepted borders of “the Dell” are east of Cahuenga, north of Franklin, west of Argyle and south of the Hollywood Reservoir. It is fully encompassed by zip code 90068.
The neighborhood was established in the early 1920’s, and today is a mix of profesionals artists, families and even some famous faces. (The Dell has been home to The Rolling Stones, Minnie Driver, Marilyn Manson, Goldie Hawn, Eva Longoria Parker and Audrina Patridge.) With only about 1,000 residences, it’s easy to feel at home in this cozy community.

The Hollywood Dell got its name because it sits “in” hills that are just above popular Hollywood, and opposed to being on top of the hills. Meaning, you will have to drive down to get into the dell, and up to get out of it. The roads within the dell are mainly hilly and many homes are built on hillside lots.

Typical homes in the Hollywood Dell are single-family homes in Spanish Colonial Revival Style architecture. (Take Sunset)

The satellite terminals were connected via underground walkways.

"A section of steel cable used to move the railway's trolley cars up and down the steep hillside remains embedded in concrete in a corner of the lot, which is priced at $450,000."

for what its worth,we use to have boy scout meetings in the nearby rec center.this was before they built the new rec center at the site of the ppa.anyways,the last remaining thing that was left at the ppa were these artdeco light post,the stands were of concret and in shape of the entrance,they even had the lights still in the globes.I always thought they were cool and tried to hop the fence that surrounded the site but it was way too high.Sorry i just had to share,to a 13 y/o it was a cool piece of a past historical place.

Well, more like sitting on the ground today -- if you look at the rightmost window you'll see that the flaps are down.

BTW, flew Western a lot when working for Honeywell. Great airline.

Cheers,

Earl

This makes me wonder how the city skyline would have evolved had their been a river/lake with actual water year round. There might now be a concentration of river front skyscrapers Starting at 9th street.
