Not sure why this crying fella has a pin on his nose at
a restaurant. Twohey's was first established in the city of Pasadena in 1943 before moving to its present location in Alhambra in the 1950's. This was a place for car hop service until the late 1970's.
UPDATE 10/02 : Twohey's was originally a drive-in burger
stand and restaurant complete with roller-skating car hops and window trays. Twohey's
billed itself as the home of the stink-o burger, essentially a hamburger
smothered with grilled onions. The character on the sign is the head
of a waiter logo, who originally carried a tray with stink-o burger
on it, hence the clothespin and tears. The stink-o and other burger
stand fare are still available on the menu but sadly the car hops and
drive-in are long gone and the restaurant has shifted to a family dining
environment. Many thanks to Joseph McLaughlin for
information above. 10-02

neon still is in great condition.

a cactus. This sign still lights up the roadside along the western part
of Los Angeles.
