      Wish there were still places like this... Children enjoying ice cream at the Hoot Hoot I Scream hut in Los Angeles, CA - c. 1930s The head rotated; the eyes, made from Buick headlamps, blinked; the sign: Hoot hoot, I scream, used elements of a theater marquee. For over 50 years, Tillie Hattrup ran this L.A.-area refreshment spot designed and built by her husband, Roy in 1926-27. It was demolished in 1979.

      Hoot Hoot Ice Cream, 1935, photographer unknown. This Los Angeles frozen dessert shack was likely built in the 1920′s and was still standing in 1940. I’m not sure when it was torn down, or better yet, why it was torn down. What kind of monster removes a building that is shaped like a giant ice cream dispensing owl? Not only did this edifice resemble an enormous nocturnal predator, but the “head” also spun around a complete 360 degrees and its “eyes” glowed in the dark.
