Echo Park Lake 1920June 1920: Panorama of Echo Park Lake looking north from Temple Street. In the distance is Edendale, where early movie studios were located. Later in the 1920s those studios moved to Hollywood.
This photo was published in the June 27, 1920, Los Angeles Times.
Edendale is no longer a district in Los Angeles. Today its split up among Echo Park, Los Feliz and Silver Lake. In the photo, Allesandro Avenue, now Glendale Boulevard, is on the left.
This photo was later published in the 1998 Times postcard book, “Times Gone By.”
