Coconut Grove Pics

    ** Click Here To View Photos ** 

Coconut Grove pics are seldom seen circulating on the internet. It takes a really great and dependable site like the www.hollywoodphotographs.com for us to be able to get a glimpse of the original and classic pictures of this once famous hotel, the Ambassador Hotel and its equally famous night club. Most of us probably have no idea as to what happened to the Ambassador Hotel and its night club and how popular it was during the 1930's and 1940's. It's a good thing that there are still some Coconut Grove pictures left for us to see how glorious it was then. The hotel actually opened on January 1, 1921 and its previous location was at the center of Los Angeles' mid-Wilshire District.

It was Pasadena architect Myron Hunt that designed it and was considered to be one of the most famous hotels during its time. Since the year the Ambassador Hotel and its night club started, it has hosted a lot of gatherings, fashion shows, events and the biggest names in the world of entertainment and was even frequented by most Hollywood personalities and luminaries in the world. Some of these were actually captured in the Coconut Grove pictures and can be viewed on the site. Some of the celebrities that were captured in the Coconut Grove pictures having a great time were Bette Davis, Sonja Henie, Jean Harlow and William Powell. Although a lot of Presidents and big entertainment stars like Barbara Streisand, Frank Sinatra, Perry Como, Bing Crosby, Evelyn Knight, Lena Horne, Lisa Minnelli, Nat King Cole, Dorothy Dandridge, The Supremes, Martin and Lewis, Richard Pryor, Mervin Griffin, and Judy Garland have visited the very famous hotel and night club, none were captured in print or if they were, none were preserved. Events like fashion shows and the filming of Coconut Grove by the Paramount Studios were eventually captured, printed and stored for us to see.
 The vast interior and the live orchestra were a legend and were probably responsible for the large crowds of people drawn to the place. These classic Coconut Grove pics are certainly enough for us to believe that such a great hotel actually existed during those early times. Even though these Coconut Grove Pics are printed in black and white, these photos are still in very good condition and are still as magnificent as its original state. The pictures are still very clear and the scenes captured are splendid and tremendously classic. Thanks to the people behind this wonderful site because they have so many historical photographs captured and preserved for posterity. They have helped us so much by safeguarding these rare historical pictures, particularly that of the Coconut Grove Pics. These photographs are copyrighted and cannot be downloaded without any permission from the site's admin, but at least we can still take a look or even buy it online and know more about the rich history and story behind these once famous places and hotels.

Some of the finest Coconut Grove pics are on the hollywoodphotographs.com web site. All the photos are for purchase.
