The residential subdivision of Whitley Heights came into being in the early 1920s after developer Hobart Whitley created the hillside community opposite the Hollywood Bowl. The streets of Whitley Heights were paved in 1926 and this road still looks like a simple dirt road. These days, of course, every square inch is filled with homes, yards, and stairwells but from this rare early view, we can see it’s still earning its reputation of being LA’s first celebrity enclave.

Whitley Heights was developed in the early 1920s by HJ Whitley as a Mediterranean village on the steep hillsides opposite the Hollywood Bowl. It became a draw for stars looking for some privacy, and attracted the likes of Marlene Dietrich, Barbara LaMarr, WC Fields, Gloria Swanson, Jean Harlow, and Rudolph Valentino. This is a (probably hand-tinted) postcard taken in the 1920s. Brown Derby Restaurant, American Mansions, California Poster
