I am not certain when this version of the sign and showroom were built but they were here when I first moved to southern California in 1983. Sadly, it seems it was only during the past year that the sign was removed and the building turned into a standard box. While perhaps people don’t think about it much with other more famous historic routes in the greater Los Angeles area, Garvey Avenue once carried at various times U.S. Route 60, U.S. Route 70, and even U.S. Route 99. It is just another small shame that no way was found to keep something unique along what is a mostly dismal drive in this area along either Interstate 10 or the remaining surface streets.
