Notice the sign in Hebrew.
I am curious.....was there ever a concentrated Jewish community in downtown Los Angeles?
ethereal--Boyle Heights has a rich history-- check out http://home.earthlink.net/~nholdened...ts_boyhood.htm for starters. There's also lots to google on the subject. If you ever find Wander's First Class Barber Shop, let me know how that electric face massage comes out. It looks like in front of the door there is a NYC-style glass-block sidewalk panel--to let light down into the sidewalk vault. I've never noticed that in a pic of LA.
