A & P Revisited

On this sad day for The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company, a brief tribute to its time in Los Angeles:

Los Angeles Times, May 2, 1950

USC Digital Library
Larchmont Boulevard

Gayley & Lindbrook, Westwood. Demolished.

Wilshire & Cochran. This building's facade (if not the whole building) still stands, now incorporated into a Staples store that has a Guggenheimesque addition to its left.

East Foothill & Rosemead Blvd, Pasadena. Grand Opening, April 1959

California State Library

USC Digital Library
One we've seen here before: Sunset & Fairfax

Per the LAPL: "A train of the L.A. Junction Railway Co. is stopped in front of the warehouse of the Great Atlantic
and Pacific Tea Co., importers of tea. Photo dated: January 7, 1932."
