They just don't make them like this anymore. I'd eat a lot more hot dogs if they came from a place like the Pup Cafe on Washington Blvd. in Venice (or was it Culver City?) By the time I was born, there was only Tail 'O the Pup, and the Dog House in Santa Monica.
This photo was shot by Ansel Adams in 1940 and unearthed by Gerard Van der Leun.
