If I remember, there were two Union 76 stations in that area. There was one on the SE corner of La Brea and Rodeo Road in the shopping center with Newberry's, etc. Thrifty drugs and corporate offices were on the NE corner. I think we may have written about the two Hody's restaurants (drive in and sit down restaurants) on the NW and SW corners in the past. The other Union 76 station was on the SW corner of La Brea and Jefferson. In the background was the old Thrifty warehouse.

Thanks bighen!




Does anyone recall this 1964 proposal to turn the 'post dam-break' Baldwin Hills Reservoir into a sports stadium for the Angels?


halosheaven

"Caption dated April 22, 1964 reads: LA Mayor Sam Yorty is reportedly going to meet with Angel president Robert Reynolds 4/22 to discuss the possibility of building a stadium
on the site of the now empty Baldwin Hills reservoir. This artist's diagram shows a ballpark drawing in the reservoir, the breech in the right field stands in the opening where floodwaters
poured over the community last December."






Perhaps we have already seen this stadium proposal on NLA. If so, act like you've never seen it before.
