Photograph of a view of Hollywood looking north from Normandie Avenue and Melrose Avenue, California, ca.1900. A few lines of trees stripe the background along the fences that mark the property lines between two homesteads. In the centerground, a small, one-story house can be seen next to a windmill with a barn further left. On the same property, to the extreme right, a shack can be seen standing next to a lone tree. In the distance behind this shack, a similar homestead whose main building sports a spire can be seen, itself surrounded by a line of thin, young trees. A post, possibly a fence post, is visible in the extreme foreground at right. Mountains are visible in the distance.
