More Walk of Fame Photos for Purchase

           ** Click Here To View Photos **

The history of Hollywood is so much more than just amazing films. The Hollywood Walk of Fame honors people in the entertainment industry in five different categories. Joanne Woodward was the first celebrity to pose with a Walk of Fame star.. She was one of eight celebrities to be selected to have their names placed in the new Walk of Fame.   
The first eight stars were dedicated in September, 1958 and placed in the sidewalk on the northwest corner of Hollywood Blvd. and Highland Ave. They were installed several months prior to the official 1960 Walk of Fame ground-breaking so as to be ready when the new, twelve-story First Federal Savings and Loan building, at the corner of Hollywood Blvd. and Highland Ave., was completed in January, 1959. The eight film notables, who bear the distinction of being the first to have their names placed in the Walk of Fame were Preston Foster, Joanne Woodward, Ernest Torrence, Olive Bordon, Edward Sedgwick, Louise Fazenda, Ronald Coleman and Burt Lancaster.
Since the first Walk of Fame star was placed in the rouge color terrazzo, there have been hundreds of Walk of Fame dedication ceremonies.  When a ceremony takes place, hundreds of adoring fans come to see their favorite celebrity honored in the Walk of Fame. One of the most heavily attended ceremonies was the one for Michael Jackson in 1984.  Some of the most recent Walk of Fame ceremonies were for such stars as Sissy Spacek, Reese Witherspoon, Cameron Diaz and Joe Mantegna.  More than one hundred Walk of Fame photos have been added to the hollywoodphotographs.com web site
