The 1950s Roxbury Drive Holiday Dress
In the 1950s, there was a two-block section of Roxbury Drive, just north of Sunset Boulevard, in Beverly Hills, where receiving guests bordered on the surreal.
Jimmy Stewart might have popped by with sweet corn or cabbage from his garden. Jack Benny would leave publicity photos on his front stoop for fans. Sometimes he would even catch a ride home on a tour bus after visiting a friend. Lucille Ball handed out Halloween candy to children.
Most, if not all, of these houses have been demolished to make way for gauche replacements. We decided to create something worthy of the old Roxbury Drive. For old, and better, time’s sake.
