Beverly Hills Street Scene (1935)

This incredible footage features street scenes in Beverly Hills, CA in 1935. This includes many great shots of vintage automobiles and architecture. Per the description:

This classic archive footage from a car travels east along Wilshire, starting near Canon Dr. You can see the former Warner Bros. Theater marquee (and later on its tower), formerly at 9404 Wilshire, on the left, and behind it on the left, the extant Beverly Wilshire Hotel. The shot continues east on Wilshire, to Robertson, where it makes a mild turn.
