Bailey's Drive-In Liquor, Whittier, CA.

Ok, it's been open since 1922, so it's not quite Googie, but I still get a kick out of the architecture, the shapes, the signage, and the fonts enough to post it here. It's a Googie precursor, a predecessor if you will. And don't worry, you purists, I'll be coming home to Orange County soon (as in once I find time to do some more hunting!) Until then, enjoy Bailey's.

Hey, I really enjoy your photos. I don't know if everything is gone now, but there used to be some interesting places on Beach Blvd, just west of the La Mirada/Buena Park border.
Thanks for getting these pictures.

What a great building! There are still a few of these drive through markets here in the valley. I pass one everyday on my way to work - what;s wrong with me? I've never stopped once in two years . . . .!
