Hollywood Bowl with the Goodyear Blimp, Los Angeles, September 24, 1932

At the intersection of Cahuenga Boulevard and Highland Avenue, the first performance at Hollywood Bowl was November, 1921. The distinctive band shell was built in 1929. In this image, the crowd listens to Franklin D. Roosevelt addressing a large audience during his second presidential campaign.
The Bowl has been a key institution in the cultural life of Los Angeles since it’s founding. In the month this phot was taken, Jascha Heifetz – considered the 20th century’s greatest violinist – made his Hollywood Bowl debut and Roland Hayes – the first Black male concert artist to receive wide national and international acclaim – performed a solo recital.
The Goodyear Blimp “Volunteer” (NC-8A) was named after the 1887 America’s Cup winner of the same name. The iconic Goodyear Blimp fleet has been maintained by the company since 1925 and has been a mainstay of its public relations ever since.
