The guy on the far left wants nothing to do with Ford's black car policy.
Looks like they had a smog problem even then! You can barely see the mountains in the background!
Cahuenga? Vermont? Western? I don't recognize a thing.
Norm. Because of marine layer from the ocean L.A. even on a clear day can look hazy. The Native Americans referred to the L.A.Basin as "The Valley of the Smokes."

Please post if you figure out where the picture was taken.
The sales bochure for our house included a statement "live in the smog free san fernando valley" of course the year was 1952.
Thanks Jay for posting
Could be Western Ave?
This is only a guess. I looked at some old pictures of Western Ave and Vermont Ave. I think that is Western Ave somewhere around Wilshire Blvd.
