In my walk down Montrose (from Sacramento to Elston), I noticed Marie's Golden Cue's marquee. The marquee reads "We have smooth shafts and clean balls".
Off Lawndale and Montrose, every single window front is boarded up with plywood. It's a ghost block, with no evidence of fire. Very eerie.
If you're ever by Elston and Montrose, be sure to check out Afghan Kabob. The food is surprisingly delicious (even cops stop here to eat!), the owner is a real treat, and hanging on a wall by the TV is an Afghan battle rug, depicting the Soviet invasion.
(this is not the rug hanging in Afghan Kabob, just the most similar one I could find)
