Blaney's Bowling, 275 N. Main St. Pomona CA

EBAY



The seller that has the Blaney's photograph for sale also has a 1940s negative of this hotdog stand in Pomona.

Cute little business but that bush seems to be right in the way.

If you look closely at the street sign..you will see that it says E. Fifth Avenue. (but the cross street is a mystery)




Here's a closer look at the two people inside. (I lightened it a bit)

I thought they'd be two employees, but the man is wearing a sailor suit.



Can you tell what kind of bush that is odinthor? I like its small attractive flowers.

...oh, and what about that trellis at the window on the left in the top photo. (it is a trellis, right?)

Have you ever seen one that straddles a window like that?

Hmmmm, I'm a little stumped, e_r. Its habit reminds me of some sort of Deutzia (much younger than this one below)


Deutzia scabra in Wikipedia article Deutzia.

But probably more likely would be some kind of Leptospermum (older than this one below)

But another possibility would be an Abelia

The trellis is interesting, and I can't say that I've seen anything like that either! It's a good idea, though, for how it's being used, as being able to secure it to the house or window frame will give it stability. The implication is that it's something that gets heavy, as a Tomato or Cucumber or something would. Might be the owner's own idea, that about the trellis. Thumbs up to that kind of fresh thinking!

So we are looking at the NE or SW corner of E. 5th (Mission) and a cross street. I looked at the Sanborns for 1928-50 and toured E 5th. The most likely corner I could find was:


lapl.org

It doesn't look like it would take much effort to rotate the little restaurant at E 5th and S Palomares 45 degrees to match the photo.

Today, not much there:

Thanks so much odinthor and Lorendoc.

After looking at the photograph again I see that there is more space between the bush and the hotdog stand.
There's even a small step for little tykes. (sweet)






Initially I thought the strange looking thing on the right side of the stand was one of those novelty machines for gumballs and what-nots,
but if you look at it close-up, it has all kinds of knobs and other bizarre looking elements. (there are even knobs along the bottom...unless those are lightbulbs)

over there - - - >




As for the homemade trellis/framework on the house; I see that it's attached to the edge of the window frame. -like odinthor said...... "Thumbs up to that kind of fresh thinking!"
And come to think of it, the trellis would come in handy if you want a tomato in the the middle of the night...just reach out the window from your bed.
but not so good if you want to see out your window.

p.s. I can't believe you the found the corner where the hotdog was located....and so FAST!! Bravo Lorendoc

HAVE A GREAT MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND EVERYONE!

I really like those fancy schmancy snack bowls on tri-pod legs.

Just for fun I thought I'd try to find the pedestal snack bowls online (without success)

but I did see this thing.


etsy

What tha?

Can anyone tell me what this is...and how it's practical? It just doesn't make any sense to me.

(I couldn't find a description...just the image)
