Wow sopas_ej....that was a great post with all the old and contemporary photographs. I thoroughly enjoyed them all.
The Garnier Building history and photos were especially interesting.


Also cool pics of Cahuenga Pass Scott.
I briefly lived in North Hollywood when I first moved to L.A., so I used the pass hundreds of times.

For a more exciting drive I took Laurel Canyon with all its twists and turns.
Here's a map. The details are hard to read though.

Driving through Laurel Canyon I remember passing the ruins of Houdini's estate (see below).
I always thought this was rather cool. The ruins of the estate remain today, undisturbed for over 50 years.

I just noticed the guy watering the plants. Kind of SPOOKY.
At first I thought he was tied up with a mask on.
