Early view of Whitley Heights near Hollywood, circa mid 1920s |

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.
