I've already done one blog post featuring Westwood Village (take a look HERE); if it's worth visiting once, it's worth visiting twice, right?
We're looking north on Westwood Boulevard, near the corner of Kinross Avenue. There's the domed B of A (now a sushi restaurant, as I mentioned in the previous post). The street looks so great with the wonderful old cars. I wonder when that center divider with the bushes was removed?
This is as close as I could get to replicating the previous image using Google's "street view". It lacks that vintage charm, but Westwood is still a pretty nice place.
Next is this view of some small office spaces, done in a sort of "Old California" motif. Faux adobe, and plenty of red tile for the roofs. You can go to the dentist, and then buy a fur coat when you're done.
I didn't know the location of the previous image, but this looks like it could be it - Glendon Avenue, near the corner of Kinross. Some details have changed in the intervening 60 years - who knows, maybe it was earthquake damage. Still, I am reasonably sure that these are the same buildings.
