Known as both Glen Oak Drive (officially) and Glen Oak Street (unofficially),
this cul-de-sac is located in Hollywood, California, just below the stone
gates of Hollywoodland at the top of Beachwood Drive in Beachwood
Canyon. It was paved in 1927.

This photo was taken sometime after 1927, when Glen Oak Drive was paved. The large rectangular building at the lower left is 6120, which has since been broken into apartments, including 6126. The large home across the street is 6125. Behind it is the rustic-looking 6129. Just up the hill, next to it, is 6135, which was torn down in the late 1990s and replaced with a much larger building. Further up the hill is a cluster of four houses: 6153, 6165 and 6171 are still standing, though they have been remodeled; the topmost house at 6175 has since been torn down and replaced.


These are the people who lived in the 6100 and 6200 block of Glen Oak Drive, according to the 1955 Los Angeles directory.
