These poor delusionals who think that Downtown Hollywood was ever "high end" are too funny. It was never EVER what it is now, all West Sidey, full of trendys paying all that rent to be in a fancy "loft" that was just created out of the SRO Fleabag it had been since the 1920's. It went from Mrs. Janes' Girls School and Paul De Longpre's Flower Salon to girls walkin' Yucca and pansys in the shrubs of De Longpre Park in about a week! In the TEENS! As evidence, I offer this recording...an AMAZING little phonograph record from 1930, by which time Hollywood Boulevard was already known for attracting the two things it always has, Whores and Queers.
