Pacific Electric streetcar no. 5170 proceeds through the intersection at Highland Blvd. and Hollywood Blvd., heading southbound past the famed (and long-gone) Hollywood Hotel.

    Mr. Weeks has his camera facing north along Highland Avenue as this southbound 5050 class car approaches Hollywood Blvd on the Van Nuys Line. In the background is the Hollywood United Methodist Church at Franklin & Highland.

    I think the dash sign reads:
    North Hollywood
    Universal City
    Subway Terminal
    (all of which can now be reached on the Red Line subway)
