Burger Chef. My favorite was you could chose your own toppings... and my favorite of that was the shredded lettuce & pickles. Nothing says healthy like lettuce and pickles smathered on a greasy cheeseburger!
(ca. 1930)^ - Automobiles parked around Carpenter's Sandwich Drive-in restaurant located on the corner of Sunset and Vine. Historical Notes Carpenter’s Sandwiches drive-in was located at 6285 Sunset Boulevard between Vine Street and Argyle in Hollywood. For 30 cents you could enjoy a hamburger and wash it down with a cup of beer while sitting behind the wheel of your car (5 cents more for the premium beer).
Very cool 1910 photo of W. Burnside looking east from 19th Avenue through the intersection at 18th; Alder angles off to the right. Burnside was actually Washington Street at this time; Burnside ended where Washington angled in from the east, and Washington continued on to 23rd where it became Barnes Road. A number of buildings seen here are still around. W Burnside and SW Washington at 19th east 1910
