In the Introduction of Son of Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History, Gary Lycan, the newspaper columnist, and my co-host of our radio show that airs on The Spa Radio Network each Saturday at 3p (pst), references the late Ralph Story’s two 1990′s documentaries that ran on PBS during the 1990′s. Things That Aren’t Here Anymore and More Things That Aren’t Here Anymore were fabulous pictorial representatives of a forgotten Los Angeles.
Let me thank my radio colleague (and good friend) John Newton, for sending me some photos that would have made Ralph Story and Gary Lycan very proud. These trips down memory lane are fascinating if you were a consumer in the 1960′s and 1970′s. And particularly bittersweet… these locations don’t exist anymore.
For me, I personally miss Farrell’s Ice Cream (home of the trough) in the San Fernando Valley, and the Van De Kamp Bakery and Restaurant (pictured below) on Atlantic Blvd. in East Los Angeles. Enjoy these visual memories…
