This is where my parents lived when they first came to California in 1939. They rented 2027 Stanley Hills Drive in the Hollywood hills. The house was built in 1938. They may have been the first tenants.
2027 is at the center of the photo – part of a duplex.
It’s fun to compare it with a Google Earth shot taken in December 2017.
Dad was based with Anaconda Wire & Cable in Los Angeles and travelled by train to some of his customers. Here my sister Jeanie is waiting to meet him at the station. I’m guessing that it’s about 1943 or 1944.
