Great photos!! However, I cannot find Sunset Blvd. at Main St. on Google today? Were the streets reconfigured? I know, also, that this is not the same Soochow Restaurant, which was on N. Los Angeles St, next to Jerry's Joynt.

Soochow was the non-Pinyin, old transliteration/spelling of the beautiful city of Suzhou; similar to Tsingtao, which today is Qingdao.
