      Ahhhhhhhh, Schwabb's, where I breakfasted very often. You'd see 'em all there over time. Elvis coming in the back door and the only customer Leon Schwabb would allow to come into the pharmacy area, naturally. Every character actor that ever walked before a camera was there reading the trades and taking abuse from the German waitress we all loved. Can't remember her namre now.. The phone numbers written on the walls of the three adjoining booths on the way to the john. This is where you'd check with your agent or answering service to let them know where you were. The phone numbers had words too, like,...
      Ho-4-8669 and Cr-4-5000 for Hollywood and Crestview. Ahhh the days with words and numbers. I finally rebelled in 1971 and made words out of ALL my numbers assigned by phone company that actually resulted in words like MOONINN and HOWTO69 as contact numbers..LOL. I could call Harrison Ford or my friends Jack Poet and Anton Greene at HOGFARM. Hey man, you're makin' me happy here with these shots.
