That's great HossC! I especially like the illustration.

around that time when October 21 fell on a Saturday. By the growth of the trees behind the statue, I'd lean toward 1950.

below: Here's a Gruen Time sign that's been hiding in plain site on Sunset Boulevard.

We've seen Bit O' Sweden before on NLA, but this is an especially good scan.

I see that the Rotary Club met there.
