    Shorpy.com presented this picture today:

    Shorpy is an inexhaustible source of early photos, including MANY of depression era filling stations and Model A's full of Okies headed for California...

    That cop must really be putting the fear in those boys to make 'em hold each others hand like that!

    After working at Consolidated in San Diego from 1939-45, they repainted the heap, moved north a bit, and founded the LA Roadsters! :)

    Neat pic, wonder if it's an earlier version of this car?

    Also, Kenny's Drugs was on 1926 Westward blvd, but I still can't figure out where Westward blvd was. Must have been a surface street that doubled as a highway back when.

    Yes...but as the comments on Shorpy point out, that thing is an unstreetable race car, and it sure wasn't built on a teenage hoodlum budget. And the lounging hoodlums look a bit old for the Juvenile Farm, though this may be a meeting of the Alumni Association.
    It does very strongly resemble the Sefton roadster above...blasted pictures both manage to block view of distinctive details that might have survived years of modifications.
    Does the guy in the T-shirt look like Sefton to you?? I am not good on faces, but I think I see a resemblance.

    Kinda does.

    Think I was wrong about the address though. The one I had is from 1960 and if you look close at the Shorpy pic, the window seems to read "newer? location, 19? Ave and Buckeye Rd". After a little detective work it seems highway 80 and Westward Blvd through Phoenix were one in the same and 80 used Buckeye for a stretch.

    Sorry, I obsess about details sometimes.
     
  19. Cheers Bruce, these pics are so cool. JW :)

    I have seen Westward both billed as Grand and Buckeye. Buckeye road is what first came to mind when I saw this picture just because of the narrowness of the road in the picture and the hotels. Even when I was a kid in the early seventies, you still had to go out Buckeye to get out to I-10 and it was a the major Westward corridor.
