The Red Feather was the symbol for the Community Chest Foundation. They would solicit donations and give you a little red feather sticker or decal for your house window. This Feather at the corner of Hollywood and Vine was the indicator for where donations were with regard to their goal.
They weren't that cool in practicality, note the absence of a yellow signal. As a little kid, I had been to visit relatives in Cincinnati around 1950.
