Johnnie's Broiler Demolished!

Another one of LA's historic buildings--one of the last Googie-style diners we had left--bit the dust this weekend--and apparently without a permit.

Is it time for mandatory jail sentences for those who tear these irreplaceable buildings down before they can be saved? You drive by and decide. Then take a detour to the historic McDonalds's, also in Downey, and see what a little bit of smart preservation can do.
