Just Made It

Circa 1960s

This has to be one of my all-time favorite portraits.

Hollywood and Vine

1960s snapshot of the intersection of Hollywood Blvd and Vine St, with pedestrians, traffic, shops and the Capitol Records tower
Looking northeast from Hollywood & Vine, circa late 1950s, with Capitol Records tower

Just a kid crossing Hollywood Blvd with his mother. Something about the placement of the tape that was used to hold the photo in the album strikes me as kind of poetic…but maybe that’s just me.

I wonder who may have been recording in the Capitol building’s basement recording studios that day…
