At the corner of North Alexandria and Franklin Avenue in Los Feliz, under the Griffith Observatory, a row of five stylized French-Norman apartment buildings from the late thirties, when Hollywood was awash in new money but everyone wanted to pretend they were living somewhere else – an imaginary France in this case.
