The best source for Hollywood images is the hollywoodphotographs.com web site.   No other collection has as many photos or as many subject categories from which to choose.  The ninety plus categories include such popular images as the Hollywood Sign, Grauman’s Chinese Theater, the Hollywood Canteen, Laurel Canyon, and Hollywood Walk of Fame.  All of the Hollywood Images are available for purchase.  

The collections clients include such buyers as Stephen Spielberg, George Lucas, Disney Studios, Architectural Digest and many others.  Photos may be purchased for both personal or commercial use.  The photos are sold as digital images or as actual photographs. 

The vast majority of collection’s images are of Hollywood.  The exception to this are the photographs of motion picture studios which were located all over Southern California.  

No other collection has the number of Hollywood images as does hollywoodphotographs.com.  Images of some of Hollywood’s finest nightclubs, and their celebrities customers, include Ciro’s, Coconut Grove and Cafe Trocadero.  Schwab’s Pharmacy on Sunset Blvd. was a popular hangout for some of Hollywood’s most glamorous stars.  

Across the street, was one of Hollywood's most famous, or infamous, hotels -- the Garden of Allah In its heyday 'The Garden' was home to, amongst many others; Robert Benchley, Ernest Hemmingway, Gloria Stuart, the Marx brothers, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Sheilah Graham, Dorothy Parker, Errol Flynn, Greta Garbo, and Humphrey Bogart. It was torn down in June 1959. 

Some of the rarest images in the collection are of the hand and footprint ceremonies that were held at Grauman’s Chinese Theater. The first to have their hands and footprints placed in the theater’s forecourt were Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks. Some others include John Travolta,  Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Marilyn Monroe.  Other rare Hollywood images include the Hollywood Studio Club and the Hollywood Bowl.
