    Sure there were, people just didn't bother takin' photos of them is all. "Hey fatty, get outa the way I'm trying to take a picture here!"

    Sigh, it was a cruel, cruel world. :eek:

    On what is now So. Fairfax Ave., @ 1/4 to3/8 mile south of Stocker St. South Fairfax was a private road at that time which belonged to the petroleum producers in the area. The petroleum industries still own and operate at that site. Ref. Google maps, and scroll to So. La Cienega and Stocker St. if interested. Year was 1942, the last year sponsored by Chev. Dealers Assoc. due to WWII.[/FONT]
