Oh, the prices! ‘Fried Spring Chicken- 50c’ 🙂
And I bet it wasn’t processed or soaked in brine until it tasted like a salty sponge…
Van de Kamps!!! I loved the one in Lakewood …I think it was in a Von’s supper market. I was just tall enough to see the goodies on the second shelf on the display counter. I can still remember the wonderful smell of that place.
Their main building is now going to be part of Los Angeles City College — it looks good after the renovation, for a while it was a graffiti strewn husk of a thing.
I am so happy to hear that is has been restored. hugs from Lanier
So cool. I’ve been researching AMERICAN GRAFFITI and it made me sad to read about the Original Mel’s being demolished after the film was over. At least it helped to bring the place back, even if it can’t be the ‘original’ building.
Fun! I can’t wait to read about it on your blog — Simon’s was on Wilshire kind of down in the Hancock Park area. Hope your cold is better, V
