Hollyridge Tales

Photo from Los Angeles Public Library (Date unknown, circa 1924)

In 1924 the hip neighborhood development in Los Angeles was “Hollywoodland.” They put a big sign on the hillside at the top of Beachwood Canyon. They built adobe-and-red-tile-roof homes widely spaced along the smooth twisting roads they cut into the hills. Creston Drive wound its way toward the sign on the west ridge of the canyon, and Hollyridge was to the east.
