Orlando & Santa Monica

A last footnote on e_r's Orlando/Santa Monica Boulevard photo. Today, the eastern part of the shoes/cleaner building (just out of view) is occupied by Hugo's Restaurant. I've eaten there, it's good. Their web site says:
Once upon a time, when anyone first walked in the front door of Hugo's, they found it was a butcher shop with an actual butcher named Hugo. In addition to the butcher's, the building in West Hollywood, which sits on an extension of Route 66 and houses the restaurant as it is now, was also a grocery, a dry cleaners and a tailor shop, all in a row. Terry, being the compassionate man he was, kept the name in deference to Hugo's widow when he took the business over.
