I'm new to this forum, but very much into restaurants. I thought the readers might be interested in my new noncommercial website on restaurants in Los Angeles and other cities built before 1970 and not substantially remodeled. The type of swanky places your parents might have taken you to. Lot's of classic roadside restaurants. It's latimemachines.com Any suggestions or constructive criticisms would be greatly appreciated.

      Good concept, Paliau. You need some work on the graphics and look of the text but I think you've got a winner there. There used to be a place in Westchester called Hamburger Handout, On Manchester----got any pics of that? Good luck with the site!

          Paliau:
          Love your site..most think of LA as sterile/totally without character...however, I've found it has more of these types of classic places than any other big city (Chicago, for example, can't wait to demolish/remodel it's legendary joints..all the suburbanites moving into the city find them "dirty")'

          If you need other suggestions for your site in SoCal, I could go on for hours!

            You might want to get some software to shrink the file size of those images! The pages were taking a long time to load.

              Your advise is well taken. Let me know if I've compressed the photos enought for a reasonable download now. I also improved the graphics.

              Thanks

                Several people have commented on my old black and white graphics, so I changed it. Let me know what you think of the new graphics and whether you have any further suggestions.

                Thanks again

                    I used to subscribe to Out West ages ago and never knew what happened to it. Glad to know it's still going in some form.
