ARCHITECT ELDON DAVIS: 1917 – 2011: HE DESIGNED OUR FAVORITE PLACES


Los Angeles celebrates the Googie style in coffee shops, and Eldon Davis, an architect who gave us many space age mid-century designs, has died at the age of 94. Architects Davis and Louis Armet opened a local firm in 1947 and pioneered in creating numerous delightful buildings that appeared to defy gravity – many of which have been destroyed. Davis is credited with popularizing what became known as coffee shop modern, and he felt free to take it to extremes because California was “open to new ideas.” Our favorite – Pann’s coffee shop built in 1958 in Inglewood, is a prime example of his work and has been lovingly preserved. You’ve seen it in countless movies. And the food is really good too.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT
    |

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
