We've seen countless photographs looking north on Vine from Sunset (you know, the iconic NBC Radio corner).

But this 1957 photo was taken a bit south of Sunset. It shows a bar on the right named 'The Hangover' with a darkened 'cocktails' sign to it's right,
and there's another sign that says 'Johnny White', (was he a headliner at 'The Hangover' cocktail lounge?)

old file

sopas_ej posted this back in 2011, but there were no follow-ups or questions.

Now days on NLA, we have a tendency to explore minutiae of this sort.... like, who the heck is 'Johnny White'? and who owned 'The Hangover'?

Good stuff like that.
