The Woodward, 421 W. Eighth

We've had several NLA postings on The Woodward over the years; but I think most of the following is new...

CBD, you have extended periods of calm and then all of a sudden you throw a fire bomb.

I mention a few old bricked-up windows and ER goes off on me. Meanwhile darling NLA members are talking about Covid-19, Polio, Spanish flu and ER says nothing. I guess past Pandemics are OK.

When I happened upon these images of a 1960s car show in Los Angeles I immediately thought of the Pan Pacific Auditorium but now I'm not so sure.

No longer listed.






What do you do think?

It looks like KRLA is preparing to broadcast a show.

mmmm (licks lips) a snack bar.









This is the image that made me question my Pan-Pacific Auditorium theory. (note the letters 'ries' on the large building)

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/1...924/NQi9ba.jpg

Like the recent show room negatives I recently posted some of the images focus on Ramblers.





#3
https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/1...922/4JdKKX.jpg

Interesting models in this show. This attractive young lady looks rather beatnik-esque.










More Ramblers.

note the amusement ride on the far right side. - - - - >







One more glimpse inside.

Most definitely not a Rambler.

Does anyone recognize the logo with the marlin over a target? It seems vaguely familiar but then again, maybe not.

Not to sound sexist but the swimsuit girl is really cute.




[Update:...I just noticed this car also appears in the top photol.

It is indeed a Rambler--a hot mess called the Marlin--hence the logo. Produced '65-'67 model years I think. (Some of these Ramblers look customized to some degree for the car show.)

What's with the sauna box?

Friendly Rambler, whose wares are on display, was at 410 N Long Beach Boulevard in Compton. They used to offer customized cars "to your individual taste at no extra cost". The cars were known as Jim Fisk Specials after Friendly Rambler's owner.

A little more info in The Metropolitan Story.

What is written at lower left? (see below)

The sign is partially blocked so it's difficult to read, I know a bit of Korean. I'll have my wife look at it, she's a native speaker. She might be able to figure it out.

ETA: She says it says "Welcome".

ETA2: The sign in the first pic above the door says "O.B. Saloon".

The band on stage are The Challengers. They were the house band for the Fair.


Some other pictures from their stint at the Palladium that year.

You can actually go right back and listen to what they sounded like at the Teenage Fair in 1965.

The 1964 Teen-Age Fair was held at the Hollywood Palladium." An ad for The Broadway that ran in the LAT on March 27, 1964, referred to the '64 event as the third annual fair....

The canopies appear to be the same--the car show pics include a banner advertising '65 Ramblers, so (obvs) the car show was sometime during that model year.

You've given me an earworm there, Noir_Noir. I knew the intro sounded familiar, but had to google the reason why. The original version of 'Count Me In' by Gary Lewis And The Playboys was sampled by Swedish singer Miss Li in her song 'Bourgeois Shangri-La'. It was used in the 2009 advertising campaign for the iPod Nano (how technology has changed).

If I'm not mistaken, the crazy girl without any shoes is the actress Catherine O'Hare. (Waiting For Guffman)





Let's take a closer look to see if it's her.

LOL, if it's her. :lmao:

Can anyone find the mom hiding in the shadows?

Wow what a great trove of photos those are, Beaudry!

I picked one at random:

What are the odds of this, 65+ years later?

Great find Beaudry! This one looks like an Edward Hopper painting.
Some interesting shots, and, oh, the smog!

Apparently demolished 1971

I like this one:

The hamburger stand with police car and red Ford (?) truck nearby...can't make out what the sign atop the place says.

The building behind is The Monterey and to the left, I believe a hardware store. Then the winding road into the hills.

It's the Bark N Bite! Another sign for the Monterey Club is over to the left above the hardware store.

A bunch of those pictures were taken on or near Huntington Drive, e.g. the Cozy Corner which was at 3501 Monterey. Earl's Bark 'n' Bite was at 4592 Huntington Drive N.

Here's one I really like, back in DTLA. It's looking east on Winston from Los Angeles St. A hotel over a sheet metal factory. Zoning only in LA.

https://i.imgur.com/r160zq4.jpg

And the ominous kitteh photograph:

https://i.imgur.com/i56NqEp.jpg
was also at the Huntington Drive N/S area. The CDs have a Don Ballarini real estate business at 4834 Huntington Drive S.
