The house at 810 Linden in Beverly Hills where Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel was murdered on June 20, 1947, as it looked some years later. Oddly, Howard Hughes had crashed his XF-11 prototype plane almost directly across the street at 803 and 805 Linden less than a year earlier on July 7, 1946.

A morning ride with the Los Angeles Riding Academy, which opened its second branch at The Beverly Hills Hotel

It’s amazing to me that people used to go for morning horse rides around Beverly Hills at all, let alone to start and end at the Beverly Hills Hotel. These oh-so-properly dressed riders were with the Los Angeles Riding Academy, which had a branch at the hotel. I’d like to see those horses dodge the Maseratis and Lamborghinis that fill the Beverly Hills Hotel’s driveway nowadays.

Next time you look at a map of L.A., note the area almost in the geographic middle of the metropolis. It's the city of Beverly Hills.

The First National Bank of Beverly Hills, located at 1418 Burton Way in Beverly Hills, near the curve where Burton veers into La Cienega It closed in 1932 at the height of the Depression.

I had a bit of a chuckle when I saw this 1921 photo of the First National Bank of Beverly Hills—it made me wonder, “Was there a second one?” Mind you, with all the money that floats around Beverly Hills, there might have been! After a bit of sleuthing, I found that this bank stood at 1418 Burton Way, which puts it on the curve near where Burton Way meets LA Cienega. I also discovered they printed their own bank notes and I have one posted on my website: http://wp.me/p5XK3w-2nP
