Jim's answer:

LONG GONE. Must be my mistake ( what page does it say that ?) because it was modified and then torn down in the late ‘70s early ‘80s.

It's on page 175, the text is "Then and now. Programmatic structures that have withstood the test of time. (1) The Fruit Basket..." and there's a photo at the top of the page. Oh well, now I know not to crane my neck looking around while I'm cruising through that area. Thanks, Jim!

Another question: On page 13, Jim reports on the White Log Tavern chain that "...by 1937 there were sixty-two of these fast-food restaurants located throughout California." And provides references.

On page 67, he writes "...the White Log Taverns, which originated in Oakland, spread forty units across California and into Oregon..."

Chris, have you nailed down the number of CA locations in your research?

I made a list of all the businesses in CA Crazy that I can take down to the library and dive into the phone books to see what I can find. In particular, I'm interested in the chains where he hasn't specified a number of locations, or the locations are not listed.

Barkies Sandwich Shops
Betsy Ann Ice Cream/Yost Sweet Shop (either a chain or building that got moved around/sold a lot?)
Big Cone
Big Freezer
Bucket
Curries Ice Cream
Donut Hole
Jumbo Lemon Co.
Sanders Coffee Shops (was the Coffee Cup Cafe a part of this?)

Idle Hour Cafe

According to Gebhard and Winter, this is a giant teapot.
607 W. Manchester Blvd., Los Angeles
It was built in 1929.

"Los Angeles magazine associate editor and friend to programmatic architecture Chris Nichols reports today that LA's last barrel-shaped building (on Vineland in North Hollywood) will be saved by the people behind Bigfoot Lodge. The former Idle Hour Cafe and La Cana Restaurant was built in 1941 and has been closed since 1984. Bigfoot Lodge owner Bobby Green and his 1933 Group picked up the building at auction this past weekend and Nichols says "Their plans for a full restoration of the place are amazing and wonderful and I’ll meet you all there for a drink when it reopens sometime next year as the Idle Hour Cafe."

The extraordinarily complicated real estate transaction is still playing out, but cleared its last major hurdle (I hope) in court on Friday. The work can't start until they get the keys, but keep checking here for updates.

In case someone still reads this, you do know that The Bucket closed in October and will probably be demolished, if it hasn't been already, right?

(Where did everyone move to, anyway?)

Okay, the Bucket looks like it's reopened. Not sure what the story is there, or of it's out of danger or just had a temporary reprieve. But I stopped to take a picture of the Coffee Pot/Hot Cha in Long Beach today, and it's boarded up and yellow tagged.

Another funny GIANT object I had to look at for over a half hour one time.

These glasses were located close to a scene of an accident where I was loading up a ford truck after a call.
