Hollywood: Then and Now

Hollywood: Then and Now

By Rosemary Lord


Putting archive and contemporary photographs of the same landmark side-by-side, the book provides a visual chronicle of a century of Hollywood. Moorish and Spanish revival architecture and Frank Lloyd Wright homes still stand alongside modern structures such as Frank Gehry's breathtaking Disney Concert Hall. A fascinating comparison of the orange groves and bean fields of yesterday with the slick urban existence that is Hollywood today, including Graumann's Chinese Theatre and the Cocoanut Grove nightclub. Sites include Sunset Boulevard, Hollywood and Vine, Immaculate Heart High School, Beachwood Village, Hollywoodland, Griffith Observatory, Hollywood High School, Gower Street, Lasky Studios, Fox Studios, Chaplin Field, MGM Studios, RKO Radio Pictures, Paramount, Hollywood Forever Cemetry, Chateau Marmont, Whitley Heights, Roosevelt Hotel, and the Garden of Allah.
