Here's the Beverly Hills Hotel in 1924. At this point, the bridle path runs along the center of Sunset Boulevard.

This undated photo shows the lower end of the bridle path from the picture above. The little building on the left is still there, but the sign and stairs next to it have gone.

I think this is the other end of the same section of bridle path (the Beverly Hills Hotel would be off to the left). This one is dated 1930-1940.
