That dance hall is, of course, the much already mentioned Flores Magón anarchist hall located near Mott and Cesar Chavez (Brooklyn.) Later, Communist bakery (I think,) mural contained within painted by Pollack's brother, and later 70s and 80s punk club. So much more to this building, too much to rehash.

I feel like you threw this one at me, ER, just to check if I was still roaming the noir.

If you look closely, the two story brick building on the right appears to be an old dance hall.

In the foreground of the photo you can see the Magnolia Theater, which appeared in the 1954 noir film (with Fred MacMurray), Pushover:

Kim Novak had her first credited role in Pushover

Also appearing in the movie was Dorothy Malone. Eight years before, she was sharing "a bottle of pretty good rye" with Bogart.

That Dorothy Malone sure was easy on the eyes. Same goes for her Big Sleep co-star, Martha Vickers:

UMC......for search purposes: Japanes restuarant on N. San Pedro St. City "Yachiyo" los Angeles Calif.

Has anyone heard of Yachiyo? I take it that's the name of the restaurant (the restaurant appears to be the small shack-like building behind the larger building in the front.
The building at the end of the block appears to be a hotel. (there's a small sign)

.

I hadn't heard of Yachiyo, e_r, but this c. 1952 image shows the same corner building in your photo on the NE corner of
N. San Pedro and Jackson Streets (Jackson was one block north of 1st Street). The three-story building down the block
seems to match the one in the UMC photo, and the two smaller buildings in between might be the same, too:

Question for you guys...

24 seconds into this clip, where you see Anouk Aimee pull up to the stoplight... is that Beverly and La Cienega?

Love it here in Glendora (lived here a couple of years) and drive past the Bougainvillea often

The shot of Lola stopped at the intersection I recognize as looking south on La Cienega from Beverly towards Third, but I don't know about the shot with the Shell station.

Thanks for finding this photograph FW. :tup:


I've been trying to figure out what the sign says on the side of the building I thought might be a hotel in the UMC photograph

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/6...923/mBDh9k.jpg
DETAIL


At first I thought it said "produce"...on closer inspection, it's products. At the top (of the sign) says..."LEE - TEX.

I found Lee-Tex in the 1941 city directory (it's the only directory it shows up in)

but it doesn't give the address of the plant...or the v-pres' address.

The sign says Lee-Tex RUBBER products...maybe Lee-Tex Oil morphed into Lee-Tex Rubber...

Looks like it was in the building that's still at the nwc of Western and 132nd...designed by no less than S. Charles Lee



And from the LAT August 14, 1955:

:previous: Thanks for digging up the old newspaper clippings, GW.


Get a load of this....Lee-Tex made balloon shoes. (I laughed when I read "balloon shoes" :lmao:)

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/8...922/No3wMU.jpg

They, no doubt, made the balloons too. ...I mean, it is a rubber company.




EDIT: I see (now) that ballooons are mentioned in GW's first clipping.

I saw this photograph a few days ago on ebay. ...... (I just checked...it's still listed. Go HERE)


Have we seen, or discussed, the "Harvey Trip" on nla?

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/1...921/BaliyT.jpg
ebay



The photograph is actually a postcard.

Here's the back. (1912 postmark)
https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/1...921/AqZ1dO.jpg



It appears to be more than a fly-by-night business. If you look closely, the driver's hat has the company's name stitched on it.

I searched through the city directories and came up with zilch. :(


P.S. Did you notice his speaking horn? (in the top pic)

E.R. - Doesn't it seem like there are way too many people in that vehicle?

Also, I think there is another person driving. I bet that guy with the bullhorn hangs on the running board and calls out the interesting locations.

I think I would pass on the Harvey Trip. Seems like it would be a hot, dusty, and probably smelly ride.

ethereal_reality Jun 14, 2019 11:25 PM

You're right about there being another driving, FredH. I see him now.

The man standing must have been the narrator of the tour.




I see that the postcard is going to Kansas. Fred Harvey was originally from Kansas. I wonder if there is any connection between the two. :shrug:

Worse part would be the solid rubber tires.

Agree we're in Burbank. There was a Newberry's at 3610 Magnolia, and a McCoy Shoe store at 3604.

The Vega Food Center was across the street in the next block at 3713 Magnolia.

Wow, Brew 102, gasometers and an old vic--real old tyme L.A.! A building like that would now go for at least a $million in S.F. unrestored, and several million restored.

The Vega Food Center was across the street in the next block at 3713 Magnolia.

There was an Akron on Hollywood Way, across from Albin's Hobbies & Toys, which is now the Train Shack.

I remember going to the grand opening of Newberry's in the early 1950s. The California Theatre opened around the same time. I saw The Day the Earth Stood Still and Rhubarb at the Magnolia in 1951 and later The Birds and the Bees and Sing Boy Sing. Has anyone heard of these movies, much less seen them? I know everyone has seen The Day the Earth Stood Still.

Magnolia Park was, and is, a great neighborhood.
