Photograph caption dated January 14, 1959 reads, "John Hasty, standing, shows friends around his Coffee Concert Hi-Fi coffee house in North Hollywood's Valley Plaza. Still growing fad of exotic coffee combined with entertainment comes to Valley at this unique establishment. Hi-Fi and stereophonic music form background to soft conversation. Talk is kept to minimum in Quiet Room set aside for serious listeners. Selections customers request are played at intervals during the evening on Hi-Fi system."; See images #00117368 and #00138350 through #00138352 for all photos in this series.
