Vintage Photos: A Drive Down Sunset Strip, 1966, Going The Other Direction

If you’re up for another drive down Sunset Boulevard in 1966, hop in and this time we’ll go the other direction, and turn the camera to the south side, which we haven’t seen at all yet. And we’ll start with this perfect shot of two contrasting cars in front of the Leaning Sunset Tower apartments, which would be gutted and turned into the Sunset Tower Hotel.

If the VW looks a bit large compared to the Continental, it’s because these early Contis really weren’t very big cars; essentially four door coupes and convertibles.


a rather familiar sight back then: motorcycle stalled at intersection, and being kick-started back to life
