VINTAGE LOS ANGELES -- "Nothing does it like 7 Up!"  Music City! Located on the north west corner of Sunset and Vine. This eventually became Wallichs Music City.

Today it's an apartment complex and most recently a Wallgreens occupies this corner.  |  Photo by Ansel Adams - circa 1945

Signal Hill changed forever when oil was discovered there in 1921. The hill would soon become part of the Long Beach Oil Field, one of the most productive oil fields in the world. Soon Signal Hill was covered with over 100 oil derricks, and because of its prickly appearance at a distance became known as "Porcupine Hill".   Photo courtesy of Water & Power Associates - 1940s

One pinner says of this 1947  photo, "I'm sure this Thrifty/A&P was at the southwest corner of Sunset & Fairfax in Hollywood. The building...now houses a Rite Aid store. It's all drug store now." Another pin adds an interesting remark, "I just noticed that there is one of the old semaphore traffic signals on the corner. I was fascinated by those when I was a kid. When the signal changed, the semaphore arms would switch and a bell would ring."
