Doggone Doggie Diner

This doggy diner got biting criticism from author Frederick Simpich in “Southern California at Work,” published in November 1934. Simpich—and likely, residents of upscale Beverly Hills—was aghast at buildings shaped like owls, teakettles, and shoes, so-called architectural eyesores that were popping up along roadsides in surrounding Los Angeles.
