Vintage Photos Of Hollywood Dressed Up For Christmas
These vintage pictures, courtesy of the Los Angeles Public Library, show us what Christmas was like for residents and visitors of Hollywood during the 1930s and 1940s.
An interesting part of the decorations are the large, metallic trees that were set up on every lamppost along Hollywood Boulevard, which turned into "Santa Claus Lane" during the holiday season. During the day, the trees looked a bit clunky, but at night they emitted a haunting and festive glow.
