We are back on Sunset Boulevard today, this time in March of 1961 at the intersection of the Boulevard and Highland Avenue which is left-to-right in the photo. The lead image was taken while the traffic light was green on Sunset and the second shot about fifteen-seconds later.
The vast majority of all of the vehicles seen in the pictures are domestically made although, four imported cars are visible, in the first view a VW “Beetle” is in the center, and a Porsche 356 coupe on the far-right at the top. In the second image a light colored MG TD is to the left at the bottom and what appears to be a dark colored Jaguar 120 or 140 series roadster has just crossed Highland Avenue on Sunset.
Tell us what you find of interest in this image. Earlier posts in the Sunset Boulevard Series can be found here. The photograph from the Los Angeles Examiner Photographs Collection is courtesy of the USC Libraries.
