What a great find, Ghost! That put me right back into the '60s. That's the old entrance on the Western Ave. side. By the late '70s the entrance had moved back around to the Hollywood Blvd. side, which was actually more attractive, and Art Deco-ish. Arnie Satin owned it by then. I've forgotten who the earlier owner was. Henderson will remember.

The pool player graphic was probably modeled after Ralph Greenleaf. Seems to me there was a barbershop at one time to the left of the entrance. I'd forgotten that they had "Billiards" also written in Filipino, Korean, and Spanish. It was one of the most memorable rooms where all the greats had played, including some of the great 3C players.
*Bump* for Henderson...

Its also written in Thai as Little Bangkok is right around the corner East on Sunset. Mr3C used to be houseman there and Hollywood Jack spent a lot of time there. Arnie used to hang around with a guy named Moose. When he passed they cleaned out his closet and found hundreds of womens purses and their IDs. Those days were rough. You could go in and put an order in for whatever you wanted and they would have it there the next day. TVs, radios, recorders, you name it.

Oh, it's Thai, not Korean. When Arnie acquired H-W he had a crony named "Tiny"-- a huge load of a guy who helped him run the room. He wasn't the same as "Moose" was he?

Yeah, Arnie took advantage of many runaway gals who came to Hyd for the glamor, and ended up on the streets...... or at Arnie's..

When I was growing up there were no Canadian geese here. I just had to stop and let about 60 of them cross the highway. These were the only ones I could get good picture of.They are wild geese comfortable at this bait farm.
