Hollywood and Vine, Circa 1979

Hollywood Vine Circa 1979

The photo is one of many taken by Matt Sweeney between 1979 and 1983. Says Sweeney at The Atlantic:

I went to Hollywood to ‘make it’, but didn’t, and ended up taking pictures of Hollywood, capturing scenes of others ‘not making it’ as well. It didn’t escape me then and it doesn’t now.

That Universal Studios billboard brings back some memories. There was never a Buck Rogers attraction, but you could tour the set and sit in the cockpit of a Starfighter.
