Lawry’s Prime Rib, Beverly Hills, circa late 1930s

Lawry's Prime Rib, Beverly Hills, circa late 1930sLawry’s Prime Rib chophouse has been on La Cienega Blvd in Beverly Hills since 1938—that’s quite an achievement by LA’s standards. I don’t know when this photo was taken, but judging by that large car parked out front, I’d say probably not long after the restaurant opened. I especially love the light in this photo—those three lamps lighting the parking lot, the way “THE PRIME RIB” is back-lit, and how it throws the car into an almost film noir shadow.
