    I used to accompany my Grandmother to shop at City foods. She lived only 2 blocks from this intersection.

    To see a car in this paint job that never ran in LA, go to the Market St. Ry. website (streetcar.org) and look up SF Muni 1080. LATL 3165 was repainted into the 2-tone green MTA color scheme in the early 1960’s and is preserve in those colors at Orange Empire.

    My Dad bought his ’55 Cadillac from Bob Spreen Cadillac on Pacific Blvd. in ’59. I still have the license plate frame from it hanging in my garage.

    My Grandfather bought a new ’60 Olds Dynamic 88 there too.
