John Fante update

Richard Schave, one of my friends from the 1947project, writes that Councilman Herb Wesson has become involved in the situation regarding the John Fante building at 826 S. Berendo, and is seeking a historical marker for the structure. Stay tuned....

And as a treat, here's a John Fante story that appeared in The Times in 1940. Enjoy!

A beautiful piece. I didn't realize that they started demolishing Bunker Hill that early. I always thought it was after WWII.

--One of the great joys of this blog is being able to share stories from our archives.... A nice surprise for me as well.
