  1. I love the “woodland” element of it. Like the way they called Canoga Park “Owensmouth,” originally. Of course, the Owens River was nowhere near “Owensmouth.” And there was no “woodland” anywhere near what would become those Hollywood hills.

  2. Awesome! And looking at the larger version of the image on the USC archive site, there’s a large letter (either an “H” or an “N”) that can be seen well left of the Hollywoodland sign, just below the ridgeline. Wonder what that was about?

    Also: The car was so king, even back then. I guess especially back then. Look at how narrow the sidewalks were and how much room those vehicles had!
