Summary expansion
The subdivision, known as the Sherman and Clark Ranch, was developed in 1923 by a real estate syndicate which included Sidney H. Woodruff, Eli P. Clark, the original landowner, Harry Chandler, Gen. M.H. Sherman, and Tracy E. Shoultz. Shoultz died unexpectedly in July 1923, and Woodruff took over as head developer. Many Hollywoodland homes were designed by architect John DeLario in Spanish, Mediterranean, French Chateau, and Normandy styles; the 78 photos included in the album are mainly Spanish and Mediterranean style, featuring tile roofs, wrought iron and wooden balconies, walled courtyards, formal gardens, tiled fountains, studded doors, and arched doorways. The photographs also document the new streets, stairs, and retaining walls winding through the hills. Most of the streets were given English names like Heather Drive, Westshire Drive, Pelham Place, and Hollyridge Drive. Of the houses photographed, many are large, one has a three-car garage, and one has a swimming pool, which attest to the affluence of the residents
