this is the tastee freeze in long beach.
it has been there since i was in grade school and still looks exactly the same these days. sometimes my mom would take my brother and i here after school. she would pull up along side the curb and we would jump out and order. i usually got a mr. pibb- and my brother would get a soft serve ice cream dipped in chocolate.
hoff's hut is still there in that general area-
and umberto's suits and tailor - but the broadway department store is long gone.
