About this title


Way before Rodeo Drive and the “pink palace” of the Beverly Hills Hotel were built, way before the namesake hillbillies, its zip code, and Eddie Murphy’s detective techniques reaffirmed its place in popular culture, and way before its 1,001 mansions, Beverly Hills was comprised of wild canyons and ranchlands. Burton Green, one of the three original land developers of the Rancho Rodeo de las Aguas, named this place of severe terrain after Beverly Farms, Massachusetts, a 19th-century spa. Since its establishment in 1907, Beverly Hills, California, has been a crossroads for the great movers and shakers of the entertainment industry as well as the tycoons, world leaders, and flotsam and jetsam magnetized by the limelight. The vintage photographs in this provocative volume illustrate Beverly Hills’s early transition from cow pastures to Hollywood’s extremely illustrious bedroom community.

About the Author:

Author Marc Wanamaker owns Bison Archives, one of Southern California’s largest repositories of vintage photographs, from which he selected these rare and evocative images. A consultant on more than 100 documentaries and the author of Hollywood: Now and Then and other books, Wanamaker is a founding board member of the Beverly Hills Historical Society.
