The same spot today, 500 Block of Flores Avenue. The cafe building is still there just over the white pickup truck on the right. There has been some remodeling and all the T's are gone.



Most of the other buildings are still there.

Amazing! They have added awnings and trees but basicly the buildings are unchanged! Around here, everything is continually changing! Most places I remember as a boy have disappeared. And of course the hills covered with oil derriks between Los Angeles and Long Beach are now all houses and businesses. The two lane road has become Interstate 405. Colorado Street is still there but I 210 bypasses Pasadena. The nice country drive between Pasadena and San Bernardino is now all cities. The last Orange grove in Orange county disappeared many years ago. San Diego, the little Navy town is now the second largest city in California. The downtown today is unrecognizable compared to Model T days. If not for the Marine Corp Camp Pendleton, we would have solid city from Santa Barbara to the Mexican border! When a building is old, they tear it down and build a bigger one.

Even the sewer/manhole lid is in the same spot! So they're still using the same piping runs, although I suspect it's been upgraded "a bit".

It is a wonderful building and some great T's.
However the visitors from beyond remind me of the ominous discussion we had with our friend Burger only one year and one month ago:
