Title supplied by cataloger. Stiles O. Clements (architect) and Edward Huntsman-Trout (landscape architect) designed the 1938 Streamline Moderne style Hollywood Park, located at 1050 South Prairie Avenue on the northwest corner of Century Boulevard in Inglewood. A fire in 1949 completely destroyed the clubhouse and grandstands. Arthur Froelich designed the replacement structures from steel and concrete making it the most fire resistant track in the nation when it reopened in 1950. In 2009 the city proposed a redevelopment project that includes demolition of the Hollywood Park racetrack/grandstand. Aerial view of Century Drive-In, located at 3560 W.
