Take a retro peek back at the Los Angeles area of yesteryear! In addition to the huge cars (plus the Ford auto plant) and lack of bumper-to-bumper traffic on the freeways, we especially liked seeing the Bank of America signage with the old-fashioned lettering; people lining up to see Richard Burton and Jean Simmons in “The Robe
” (in Technicolor!); Safeway, Ralphs & Thrifty grocery stores; and 33 cents being hand-keyed into a cash register for a six-pack of Coca Cola in glass bottles. What most surprises you?
