Irv Spence's Cartoon Diary: August 10, 1944

A view of The Hitching Post in 1943.

The site in its current state as the W Hotel. It could be worse.

The Hitching Post was a movie theater, located at 6262 Hollywood Blvd. just east of Vine, that only showed westerns.

The Hitching Post, 1941 via

The Hitching Post in 1948.
Going by the faded sign in the drawing, it looks like that day's double bill was The Yellow Rose of Texas and possibly either Texas Terrors or Texas Terror.

A 1946 postcard view of Hollywood Boulevard looking west toward Vine. From
The same view today with, oddly, less traffic.
