Photograph of Vine Street at Selma Avenue, showing the Lasky-DeMille barn on the southwest corner, ca.1925. Automobiles sit parked along either side of the street. Many cars drive on the four-lane street going both towards the foreground and away. Large trees hang over the street from the sidewalks. Utility poles line the right sidewalk. Small buildings stand behind the trees on either side. To the left, a white two-story commercial building can be seen, while behind it, the Lasky-DeMille barn can be seen on the southwest corner of Vine and Selma. It features an eave and three windows in the larger section, while the smaller part of the building is south of it looking towards Sunset Blvd. The barn is now the Hollywood Heritage Museum (California Historical Landmark, No. 554). To the right, a building bears a sign that reads "Real Estate. Insurance. Rentals. Leases. Behind it, a building with a sign reading "Paramou[nt]" can be seen. Street lamps, utility poles and more trees line the sidewalks by the street. Note: Originally the photograph was captioned as "View of Vine Street at Sunset Boulevard, showing the Famous Players Lasky Studio, ca.1925".
