My dad told me there was a Johnnie's in Huntington Park. The same owner as Johnie's in Downey. He sold the H.P. location and moved it to Downey. Maybe this is it.

Architect

The original building permit which is dated 1960 and indicates the architect/engineer as Joe Passero of Long Beach. Phil Anthony from what I know hired architects to design his homes. If anyone knows anything about the Anthony homes please post.
