Book Description: Since World War II, Hollywood has fought and won that same war many times, won the West even more often—plus got the girl—and laughed like crazy, too. The postwar era in the dream factory was a prosperous time of expansion and wealth through the 1970s, decline in the 1980s, and rebirth in the new century. Vintage photographs from the rare collections of Hollywood Heritage and Bison Archives depict the municipal, business, residential, and entertainment industry growth in Hollywood proper, from 1940 until the beginning of the 21st century. This companion volume to Arcadia Publishing’s Early Hollywood completes the pictorial saga of the world’s most renowned storytelling capital. These images depict the rise of the television industry, changes along Hollywood Boulevard, and movers and shakers whose visions and influence have made Hollywood the entertainment industry’s Mecca.

Author Bio: Author Marc Wanamaker, a founding member of Hollywood Heritage, owns Bison Archives, one of Southern California’s unique photographic collections.
