Vintage photos of:
August 1963, Hollywood Boulevard. On "The Walk of Fame." My brother, standing down the block in the vicinity of the '61 Chevy, holds a bag of records, so we've just come out of Phil Harris Records on the left. No relation that I've been able to determine, but a notable Hollywood establishment nevertheless. Another is down the street: Frederick's. Nearest star is for early Hollywood pioneer Thomas Ince, a name definitely worth a Google. View full size.
