North-south section along Cahuenga Blvd. showing subsurface interpretation of faults based on studies for Los Angeles subway (Crook and Proctor, 1992).

Note the drawing on page 7 — 130 meters of left-lateral displacement of the Hollywood Fault at Los Feliz Blvd and Fern Dell Dr.
The south-flowing drainage at Fern Dell Drive appears to have been offset at least 130 meters in a left-lateral sense (locality marked S4e in this figure) with a younger fan starting to develop where Fern Dell crosses Los Feliz. (Figure modified from Figure 14 of Hernandez & Treiman, 2014)
