Easy to confuse Ungar with Watson. Hint: Ungar probably has the warmer office. Either one might have a potential problem if sitting at their desks during the Long Beach Quake.

City limits sign caught my attention.

You mention the "Depression of 1930". During the so-called Great Depression of the 1930s the unemployment rate was slightly above 24% at its worst.

Today in 2013, ignoring the phony stats and manipulated numbers, the 'real' rate of unemployment is 24%.

below: The Los Altos Apartments in the 19[3]0s. On the far side is the building that eventually would become Perino's. I had no idea it used to have a rather striking art deco pylon.

So is this the same building or not? Why lose the impressive pylon?

Whatever the "real" numbers of unemployment now or then, technology has not slowed down in recent years. Sales and availability of product have risen dramatically in the past five years. During the Depression, radio sales zoomed because sets got cheaper and people figured out how to pay for them (buying on time became popular), more stations came on line, and consumers wanted more and more entertainment and news--just as they do today.

Per 1909 article, Charles Howard was home-based in San Francisco, but clearly had lengthy and substantial LA ties. When he needed tubes for his Majestic, he probably didn't have long to wait. Curious use of the word "flying." Would expect that in '09, the fastest means of travel between the two cities would have been by rail. Neither Tesla nor the Bros. Wright seem to have perfected alternative means of travel for many years to come.

1930 - Majestic's separate and substantial warehouse. The integral abutments suggest the building was built to last as long as there are radios and the need for refrigeration.

Important tips: Unless you are related to Ungar or Watson, please do not park in assigned spaces. Please extinguish all smoking materials, except for Chesterfield and Prince Albert. They're mild and medically approved.:burstbubble

Good to know that after eating 500 sandwiches, relief is available in the form of "Sal Hepatica."

Sal Hepatica? Guess it was before my time. I'm a youngster born in 1951. But I did find this YouTube video of an old commercial for it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3P0iJ9er26E

I don't know exactly what has changed, but I have a hard time following the flow on Noirish Los Angeles lately. Seems like maybe there are too many pictures being placed in a single post. There is often no explanation. Then there are other posts with so much explication that it becomes a bit tedious. I hate to carp, but I do yearn for the simpler posts found earlier in the Noirish Los Angeles thread.

GaylordWilshire Aug 6, 2013 1:03 PM

:previous:

Agreed. I tend to skip long posts. A general rule might be: Don't post every single available picture on a subject. If there are a bunch, post the best--and (this is key to being of interest on Noirish Los Angeles, those that are identifiably "L.A."--and link the rest. Just my 2ยข.
