The L.A. County Fair’s food court was recently demolished. See Friday’s column for more on that.
The top view of the Food Circle, as it was first known, is said to date to 1939, its debut year. (It’s from a fair calendar, which accounts for the type at the bottom.) Bonnie’s Southern Fried Chicken, Hap’s Cafe, Hamburger King and Brock’s Swiss Steak are among the original stands.
Examine the photo carefully. Did the fair really have a stand devoted to creamed chicken?
The food court was renamed Super Diner in 1985 after a remodel and Sunset Cabana in 2003 after another remodel. The second photo was shot in 2009. Friday’s column is in part about the food court, which was demolished in December.
Anyone have any memories or comments to share about the Food Circle?
