The Brown Derby, November 1963



One of the most beloved Hollywood restaurants of yesteryear is the Brown Derby. This November 1963 shot shows the Wilshire Boulevard location. A closeup of the neon sign that sat atop the restaurant:



Based on a google search, Dale's Secret Harbor Restaurant went belly-up, but it would appear that Groman Mortuaries are still in business. People don't always have to eat, but at some point, they're gonna' die.



A contemporary shot of one of the existing neon signs from The Brown Derby, while it was on display at the Museum of Neon Art in Glendale:
