Where that Currie's was, is now the hipster restaurant/bar called Home. Though the railroad bridge is now long gone, you can still see remnants of its foundations on the hillside there.

Ahren's Kitchen and a Chapman's at Larchmont and Beverly, mid-'30s. (Note what appear to be downtown-style street
signs on the lampposts.)

Did you say Larchmont?

Here's what happened to Baby Jane. She didn't grow up-- she just grew OLD! She was waiting for that big day that her daddy said would come! That's what happened to Baby Jane.

Lost in perspective. The "then" photo appears to be shot from across the street, while the "now" google street view is, well, shot from the street, so being closer to the building, the building obscures the mountains. Not to mention the trees...

This is my favorite now and then. Thank you all for making the previous month so entertaining.
Not to mention catching the original Hartz Mountain flea collar... just, Wow.
