View of the two-story facade of the Lucca Cafe, at 501 So. Western Avenue in Los Angeles. A woman is ready to cross the street, and behind her a family (?) strolls past the nearby storefronts. "Lucca" is written in large letters on the second story, as well as a huge sign atop the building. An automobile has paused at right, although the stoplight says "GO." Photograph taken on December 21, 1937.
