Searching the USC digital archives for photos of Venice, I found this in the collection called “Robin Dunitz Slides of Los Angeles Murals, 1925-2002.”

It’s a great view from in front of what’s now Menotti’s Cafe on Windward. Based on the striped column, it looks like there was once a barber shop there.

What’s now Collage Cafe once had a sign labelled “Flea Market.” I remember when Bank of Venice was a Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. It’s hard to believe that back then it was a health food store.
