Los Angeles rapid transit in 1901.
This ran up the 3rd St. Hill right
next to the tunnel that still exists.
Perfect service until one hundred years
later when it was relocated
and 'renovated' and now in limbo
after a tragic accident about six years
ago in 2001 just after they re-opened it.

• "EVERY DAYS A SPECIAL DAY AT THRIFTIMART"
-ancient Polaroid by Richard Sapiro
Above Thriftmart, " Open 24 Hours"
across from Bekin's Moving and Storage
which now is a Leed's Mattress store
and in the same shopping center as a
Baskin Robbins Ice Cream store, one of the
first stores for that then Glendale company.
I went to NHHS with
Steve Baskin who's
family were part owners
of this unique
SoCal ice cream store.
A long gone supermarket chain of the 1950's
to 60's absorbed by Smart & Final.
There was one near Oxnard on
Lankershim in North Hollywood
with it's tall " T " icon.
There was another in the Valley Plaza that
was a small shopping center with small shops
on one side of the market and also a shoe repair
and Chef's chicken bbq.
Every day's a special day at Thriftmart
Every Day's a special day for you
So what ever you put in your shopping cart
you'll save and save at Thirftimart...
•CHAVEZ RAVINE AIR RAID SIREN
THIS AIR RAID SIREN near Dodger Stadium
Back in the ancient days those Americans, yes US,
thought we would be incinerated by 'NukeLer',
as the Texans say, war which was supposed to
come from the Commie Ruskies, we didn't care
of the killing hundreds of thousands of their own
Commrades and it didn't mean they could have set
off the missles. But anyway, these sirens tested every
Friday last day of the month at 10 am MY WHOLE
growing-up. There are more in
Sunland-Tujunga ∆clic∆ and NoHo,
a few others around town.

• HODY'S RESTAURANT NoHo
Oxnard & Lankershim in North Hollywood
during the late 50's. A major L.A. restaurant
chain called Hody's. There was one at Hollywood
& Vine, and two at La Brea & Rodeo. They had a
clown mask menu for kids. There was a coffee
shop and dining room including a bakery.
There was a major fire and it was never rebuilt.
By the way Rodeo is pronounced like the horse way,
only does it change to the posh way in 90210 down
the way a bit. PHOTO by Richard Sapiro.

WE NEED SUM SPLAININ'
this my new yard pet,
57 (fifty-seven) YEARS AGO !
Sunland Tujunga & North Hollywood
are the City of Los Angeles,
California in the U.S.A.
We also live in the County of Los Angeles
this is the evil maybe x-logo that has that
G-d reference, and other stuff of the devils.
The County has used for it decades, WHO KNEW?
We can always make fun of ourselves
as with the fake-logo for Kalifoana.
With this neighborhood blog about
these cities with unique
historys and lifestyles,
we will shed some humor
and truths concerning our
