after viewing the aerial shots i now totally agree i was completely off track. 50 years is a long time to remember the exact locations.
i lived there in 1950 and loved those places. the aroma of walking by
welch’s is still there. seeing the “thing” at the crest and walking home thru scherer park over the railroad track to locust and peace st is still eerie

i believe they remodeld the old building i was there last monday
and when i looked at the right side of the building or the north side
without all the new decor on it – it looked like that side toward
the back was not redecorated or more like the original siding was
i took photos and can send you them i need an email address to send them to tho

i check with long beach historical society after posting this and christie there confirmed that the crest was located where trader joes is now they had to use the 4200 number block for the small shopping center is why they changed the number of the building to 4121 even tho it is actually in the 4200 block since it is north of cartegena

believe the old building is still there and has been remodeled,
trader joes is now there, the street number was changed because a small shopping center was constructed on the empty lot to the north
between the theatre and burlinghall street
i could be wrong but i think i might be right
