Notice several street name changes. Hays Ave. has become Havenhurst Dr.
May Ave. has become Hayworth Ave. Crescent Ave. has become Fairfax Ave.


1941 - Norton Ave meets North Harper.

A quiet and sedate neighborhood at the cusp of a multi-family-dwelling building boom.

1941 - Norton Ave (I reckon we are looking south at Chapman's Ice Cream, 8246 Santa Monica Blvd, per '42CD. Yes, the building with the scalloped front entrance is still there. Make mine French vanilla topped with walnuts)
