There were a lot of streets like that in the 40s and early 50s in LA, that's when the Bathing Suit looks like. But it could be anywhere

The plants behind her look like young Ficus Benjamina, which are even more plentiful in L.A. than palm trees.

Try San Pedro California around the Paseo Del Mar area. Possibly Long Beach residential. 1950's.
If those don't ring a bell, maybe early Hollywood Blvd or Santa Monica Blvd. Even with the grainy B&W, it looks like a typical marine layer overcast sky common to So Cal. Great picture!

You might want to check pix of Venice Blvd back in that era. Sorry I can't help more.

I am guessing early to even mid 50s from the hair style and suit, but could be very late 40s. As for the area, every place in So Ca looked like that then. It remembles Hill drive in Eagle Rock, but could be anyplace. Even many areas of Altadena had the palm trees. We lived on New York Drive, it was solid Palm trees.

Google search has a function where you can search Images and chose 'Black & White' only. That may yield some results if you enter some of the above suggestions and enclose them in quotes.

Venice Blvd, good one eureka!

A better question would be "where isn't there residential housing?"
