R.I.P. Historic restaurant spot at Hollywood & Vine
Once the site of Melody Lane, Hody's, Howard Johnsons and the 'New Brown Derby', 1707 N. Vine (at the corner of Hollywood & Vine) went up in smoke the morning of April 30, 2008. Thank goodness I had a snappy camera in my car when I heard the news that it was on fire and I was able to get a few photos. Supersleuth Chris Nichols posted a wonderful photographic history of the corner.
