As Beaudry says, the hamburger joint is called 'Bark n Bite'. This shot with the lumber yard shows the area to the left of the image above (compare the houses in the background).

And this one shows the sign for the Monterey Cafe as well as the lumber yard. The sign is behind the pole on the right in the picture above.

There are signs for 'Huntington Dr N' in several images (and I see that Lorendoc has given the addresses of two). This aerial from 1956 ties together the locations of the views above as well as a couple of the others. The street that passes Cozy Corner and Atlas Tires is Monterey Road, and the winding road is Edloft Avenue.

Same light-string too, except they moved it from the parking lot to the building frontage.

Thanks for the follow-up Lorendoc! Great to see the letters are still there, and I think you're right about the lights, odinthor.....what a lovely relic.
