The Krazy Kone in Montebello is a good place to look at when its hot outside. This place looks like some type of silk screen place now.


UPDATE 01/02 : In the late 40's and early 50's this sign marked the Curries Ice Cream shop, always a welcome destination. It was a great place to get "hand packed" ice cream to go, as well as cones. Many thanks to Tom Cockle for historical info posted above. 01-02

Imagine traveling down the road on a hot day, thirsty, and all of a sudden a huge Shasta soda can appears in your sights. What do you do? Stop and snap a photo of course!
