Regarding some little upstart company called . . . Honda on Pico Blvd. in '59:
the big yellow tower is 7 houses away from my old house,its always been yellow and when i was younger i thought it was an office buidling.they use to have a little lobby with pictures of the well,but now its off limits.Also if you ever want a great sandwich, go to olsens deli which is prob where the picture was take from,they have been there for years (since 1959),its a scandinavian deli with good prices.
