Clifton's Renovations Reveal Old Glory

The renovations at Clifton's Brookdale Cafeteria on Broadway are uncovering many treasures. Rather than repeat all the secrets--including the discovery of what is probably the world's oldest continually operating neon light--I will refer you to this article by Hayley Fox on BlogDowntown.

There's also an LA Times piece from February about the plans for the restoration.
