North on Vine in 49
This wonderful view north on Vine St. toward Hollywood Blvd. gives us a look at the side of the Ricardo Montalban Theatre, here as the CBS Studio Theatre, with KNX painted on the side of the stagehouse. That's it nestled in just this side of the Plaza Hotel. The photo was discovered by Ken McIntyre. Click on it for a larger view or go to Ken's post on Photos of Los Angeles.
This one is now on our web page for the Montalban Theatre, which has gone under many names since its opening as a legit venue, Wilkes' Vine St., in 1927.
