Seems to be no L Street in Merced. It’s K Street, Canal Street and M Street.

Srue could use an address, more info and photos.

The old Rio Theater, long ago demolished, was an old theater by the mid 1940s, and for a dime, gave skid row drunks a dark place to snooze. They showed old westerns there. I watched part of a Hopalong Cassidy movie there when I was five. Most of the seats were cracked with age.
