A New Look at the Old Spaghetti Factory Building

Recently, I did a post on the demolition of the old Old Spaghetti Factory Building at 5939 Sunset Boulevard and in it I wanted to show what a beautiful building it originally was when it was built in 1924 as the elegant Hollywood showroom of the elegant Peerless automobile. Unfortunately, the only photos I could find at the time were some grainy old newspaper shots. But now, thanks to the amazing Richard Adkins of Hollywood Heritage (who dug into the vast and mysterious Hollywood Heritage archives) we now have this great set of vintage images from the opening days of the Peerless Showroom in 1924. Clearly a classy establishment unlike an auto dealership I’ve ever seen.  As Burgess Meredith’s character in Rocky would have declared, it was “a ting a beauty.”

Enjoy!
