1960s Hollywood map hankie, first issued in the 1930s and periodically updated.

A highly-detailed map spreads out over the rest of the hankie, with historical Old Hollywood features and humorous touches. The famed sign still fully spells out HOLLYWOODLAND; Mae West's apartments and Bing Crosby's ranch are noted; Fox Studios in Beverly Hills still emits the amusing "Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes"...

But a comparison to the older version (as shown in Handkerchief Heroes at http://handkerchiefheroes.com/hooray-for-hollywood/), shows minor differences. Griffith Park has expanded to include the Greek Theatre (built in 1929); the Torcadero (opened in 1934) has been added to "Night Clubs" above Beverly Hills; and Warner Bros. Studio has been moved to its actual location.

This 1960's version includes the addition of Lucy's Restaurant on Melrose.
