Beverly Hills Hotel
The Beverly Hills Hotel was built in 1912 before there even was a town of Beverly Hills. Shortly after completion it began to attract many Hollywood stars, i.e., Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks, Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Rudolph Valentino, and Will Rogers. Harold Lloyd made part of a movie there in 1921, and an untold number of stars followed thereafter. Elizabeth Taylor spent six of her eight honeymoons there. The hotel closed from 1992 to 1995 for a $100,000,000 renovation. The first photo is dated 1912, the second 1921 (note position of the towers), the fourth 1925. The seventh shows Will Rogers in 1930 and then the pool in 1948.
