Amazing Hollywood Walk of Fame Photographs

        ** Click Here To View Photos **

The most amazing collection of Hollywood Walk of Fame photographs is on the hollywoodphotographs.com web site.

There are almost 800 photographs of the famous ceremonies that take place in Hollywood every month.  After the first eight stars were laid at the northwest corner of Hollywood Blvd. and Highland Ave., in 1958, the official groundbreaking ceremony took place in 1960, near the corner of Hollywood Blvd. and Gower St.   Shortly after the groundbreaking ceremony, about 1700 brass stars were installed in the new terrazzo sidewalk on Hollywood Blvd. and other side streets.  

After the initial 1700 plus stars were installed, several celebrities posed for photographs next to their brass star.  Marguerite Chapman and Jayne Mansfield were two of those who posed by their stars.

Beginning in the 1970s, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce began a campaign of honoring celebrities in the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  Since the original 1700 stars were laid, there have been more than seven hundred celebrities honored with the installation of their names in the walk of Fame.  In 1978, James Caan and Bill Cosby were two that were honored in he Walk of Fame.  The 1980s saw Larry Hagman, Joel Grey and Lorne Greene  saw their names placed in the famous sidewalk.

One of the most heavily attended Walk of Fame ceremony was for singer Michael Jackson.  Hundreds of adoring fans watched as Michael saw his star unveiled.  During the past ten years, or so, scores of celebrities have been honored by being inducted into the terrazzo sidewalk.  Jane Seymour, Leslie Caron and Kiss are but a few of the celebrities whose Hollywood Walk of Fame photographs are in the hollywoodphotographs.com.

All the photo on the hollywoodphotographs.com web site are available for purchase.
