Moving everything out of the soon to be demolished Monrovia Public Library.
I hope they include something from this library into the new one so it doesn't fade completely into history.
The empty corkboard seems so final.

Orange Julius. The stand on the corner is now Los Chilis Locos and you might also be able to see that the sign across the front of the building itself still says "Johnni's Burger."
This is an important corner for Monrovia history. The Certified Market hidden behind Los Chilis Locos used to be Pronto Market. Pronto Market was the company that would eventually become Trader Joe's. This would all come full circle when Trader Joe's moved their headquarters to Monrovia.

It's currently: The 4th Dimension.

... an A&W drive up burger stand. We used to ride our bikes there in the summer and get megaphone shaped containers of ice cold root beer. Then we'd annoy the neighborhood with the megaphones.
Now it's the Mediterranean Garden Grill Restaurant.

Time for a little nostalgia. On this spot before The Gables, there was a one screen movie theatre originally called the Lyric Theatre. Later, when I was growing up, I knew it as the Crest Theatre.
Here's a photo of the old Lyric / Crest Theatre from the USC Digital Archive.
Here's a little more info from Cinema Treasures.
