Dining at the Van Nuys Hotel

Van Nuys Hotel Cafe

Last month, I posted an image of the Cafe Bristol in the basement of the Hellman Building. Here’s another postcard, stamped 1911, of a downtown restaurant: the cafe at the Van Nuys Hotel at 4th and Main streets. The card is listed as Buy It Now for $6.89.

Here’s a postcard showing the exterior of the hotel (listed at $7.50 on EBay).

    Did anyone ever find out what is currently in the basement where the Bristol Cafe was?
