A postcard showing the Pin Ton Company Confectionary, 427 S. Broadway, has been listed on EBay. I don’t recall ever hearing of this business or seeing this interior. The store flourished around 1915. Bidding on the postcard starts at $9.99.
Feb. 5, 1915: Local window display managers have their monthly gathering at the Pin Ton!
Here’s what the street address looks like now. http://maps.google.com/maps?client=safari&rls=en&q=427+S.+Broadway,+Los+Angeles&oe=UTF-8&um=1&ie=UTF-8&hq=&hnear=0x80c2c64b06b7376f:0xb95fac8062915bb,427+S+Broadway,+Los+Angeles,+CA+90013&gl=us&ei=Uz6BTvDbMeXo0QGH9dyRAQ&sa=X&oi=geocode_result&ct=title&resnum=1&ved=0CBMQ8gEwAA
Looks like the building is still standing, then, based on that link (thanks!). I had no idea those buildings went so far back — might have to pretend to be shopping for a quinceanera dress sometime and try to scope it out 😉
