Thanks to to FFF and BDiH for your input - I have just read "L A Noir" which indicates that Mickey Cohen had a haberdashery shop - Cohen must have known Wilkerson - so could Cohen's shop be the same one ?
Mickey's shop wasn't the same one--his Michael's Exclusive Haberdashery (and later, but not for long, the Mickey Cohen Exclusive Haberdashery) was at 8804 Sunset. His henchman Hooky Rothman was shot to death here on August 18, 1948.
