Once upon a time, Hollywood was like something right out of a big budget extravaganza. Full of glamour, magic and money; of happy endings and sometimes tragic ones and fortunes made overnight.
From the 1910s through the 1950s, Hollywood was where a new art form developed, and where America's dreams became reality. The rich and famous and the soon-to-be-famous lived and worked here. Walking the streets, you might have seen Marilyn Monroe, Lana Turner or Judy Garland.
If, walking the streets now, you're more likely to see streetwalkers than stars, that doesn't mean Hollywood has lost its appeal, or even its magic. The Hollywood of legend still lives, and not just in our imaginations. Monuments left from the glory days are still glorious in their own ways.
