The book was published in 1923 and written by Laurance L. Hill and Silas E. Snyder and I initially thought it was a religious book touting the evils of Hollywood. After the quick read (it's only 64 pages) I found it to be a rather charming travel guide, trying to drum up commerce after the recent Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle and William Desmond Taylor scandals (as mentioned inside).
Each section starts off giving a brief history of the city and goes on to present the case why in the early 1920's, Mom and Pop America shouldn't be afraid to come and enjoy the film industry section of "The Golden State". The religious and moral overtones ARE present throughout but always connected to present the city in the best light possible.
The best part of this book, for me, happens to be the numerous photographs showing the primitive Hollywood before structures covered nearly every square inch of earth and movie stars in candid poses. We also get to see some of the beautiful star homes in all their glory and without all the security needed today. I have left in the captions at the bottom of the pictures so one can see the religious angle of the book and have added some commentary where I think it fits.
Is that and early "H" from the "Hollywoodland" sign?
