Summary expansion
The album includes four photographs of Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast in Italy, sites which inspired and influenced the architecture and design of Woodruff's development of Dana Point. The single photo of the oceanfront strip of downtown Long Beach suggests that Woodruff also studied the development and look of other coastal towns in California. Visible along the ocean are the towers of the Villa Riviera and the Pacific Coast Club, and the rooftop sign for the West Coast Theatre, designed by the firm of Meyer and Holler (architects also of Grauman's Chinese and Egyptian theatres in Los Angeles), and built in 1923-24 (now demolished). There are 13 photos of Dana Point, featuring some of its homes, as well as scenes of swimming, sunning, horseback riding, and fishing along the coast. Two copies of a photo of a group of yachtsmen, in nautical dress, gathered above on the bluff to receive their trophies, suggest the popularity of boating and yachting in Dana Point. There are three photos of the Blue Lantern Fountain Cafe at 34091Pacific Coast Highway, a service station and lunchroom still standing, and one of the Dana Point Tract Office with sign bearing Woodruff's name. Also included are two copies of a photo of an architect's rendering of a proposed residence for Mr. & Mrs. S.H. Woodruff, dated Dec. 1928; a caption on the back of one of them reads "Residence built & completed. Dana Point, Calif." Photographs relating to Woodruff's development of Hollywoodland, beginning in 1923, include a panoramic view of several houses among the hills, the Hollywoodland sign above, and Lake Hollywood in the foreground; the Hollywoodland Tract Office at 2690 Beachwood Drive, and two photos of Hollywoodland houses, including the Spanish Revival Busby Berkeley house, with honeycomb detailing on its garage doors. There are also some miscellaneous photos of commercial properties in Santa Barbara (James R.H. Wagner Real Estate, Murray's restaurant, Michel A Levy shoe store), and two copies of a close-up of avocados growing
