For years, 743 S. Spring was the home of Levy’s Cafe, but sometime in the early 1920s the address became Hoffman’s. It’s not clear from The Times’ clips as to what occurred. This is what fine dining looked like in downtown Los Angeles c. 1921. This postcard has been listed on EBay. Bidding starts at $9.99.
