Photograph of a view of Windward Avenue in Venice Beach, showing many cars along the side of the road, ca.1920-1929. The two-lane paved street runs from the foreground to the background at center. It is lined by two-story buildings at left and three-story buildings at right. Both sets of buildings have covered arcades in front of them. The buildings are light-colored and house shops, hotels, and restaurants. Many early-automobiles can be seen parked along the sides of the road. A sign that says "Venice" is suspended over the street.; Legible signs include, from left: "Sebastian Café Ming Dancing Cabaret Dorsey Orc.", "The Florsh Shoe", "United", "Mars Café", "Ladora Hotel", "W. L. Douglas Shoes", "Hotel Del Mar", "Men's Wear", "Humpty Dumpty", "Beach Soft Water Laundry Cigar Stand".
