Of course this would be much older than 1925, and probably father west...


As the route of Beverly Boulevard developed from downtown via Temple and First, there was already a Beverly Boulevard in Beverly Hills... that road's extension westward from BH became Sunset Boulevard in 1934... not sure when the Beverly within BH--not today's four blocks if it within the city limits but another road to the north--became Sunset, tying in with L.A.'s Sunset coming from the east and completing that road all the way to the ocean.

LAT June 23, 1934

LAT June 19, 1932

Just a couple of the many confusing newspaper pieces to the puzzle of the various Beverly Boulevards.... I'm sure someone has the history all worked out somewhere...?
