Googie Road Trip!

To honor Eldon Davis' passing, James Horecka posted his Googie Road Trip slide show--complete with maps--on the Hidden Los Angeles Facebook feed. Bob's Big Boy, Pann's, the former Wich Stand, the LAX Theme Building, all pretty and refurbished...There's even a new (2009) site in the mix.

And because I missed Mosaic Monday this week, I'm illustrating this announcement with one of the pictures in the slide show, used with permission: the "N" mosaics that decorate Norm's Restaurant at 470 N. La Cienega. The firm of Armet and Davis designed this in 1957.
