Greetings from Hollywood Boulevard, where you can "bone up on the city's past"

From Retiring Guy's postcard collection

Old Hollywood History Tour.  Bone up on the fabled city's past during a walk-around, tidbit-filled outing.  (NBC Los Angeles, 5/17/2017)
For a chance to hear walls talk... Well, an app may be a little far down the road on that. But tours that illuminate characters and places go a long way to connecting the thread of time in our history-loving, Hollywood-happy minds.

Here's the Kinks' homage to this fabled street and its Walk of Fame.  It's from their 1972 album release Everybody's in Show Biz, which debuted on the Billboard Top 200 Albums for the week ending September 23rd.  It spent 14 weeks on the chart and peaked at #70. The song was released as a single but did not chart.
