Development of Hollywood
Hollywood's physical development differed from that of its neighbor to the east in a number of ways. Notable in the 1928 Tomlinson Engineering Map is the size of the blocks radiating out from South Gregg Street to the east. Designed to accommodate more graciously appointed residences, these parcels tended to be larger and oriented north to south as opposed to Rose Hill's east to west layout. Of note, too, is the curvilinear nature of Southwood Drive, which was contoured to meet South Pickens Street's diagonal orientation to the blocks lying to its east.
