Grauman's Chinese


Where do you start with postcards of the Chinese? -- there have been hundreds. More than of any other theatre in the world. This lovely 20s view is from the terrific collection of Brian Michael McCray. His 400+ cards were all on display on Picasa until Google decided to "retire" that platform.



Another great card from the McCray collection.



A 40s look east along Hollywood Blvd. from above. It's a card in Brian Michael McCray's collection. The card also appears in the gallery section of the website about Outpost Estates, a Charles Toberman project up in the hills above the Chinese.



A 40s premiere night at the Chinese from Brian Michael McCray's collection.  Thanks, Brian!
