Description
A view from the parking lot of Simon's Drive-In Cafe at the corner of Wilshire and Fairfax in Los Angeles. The building is round, with a large, tall pylon emerging from the middle with the restaurant's name on it. The building is decorated with words and designs in neon lights. Automobiles are parked in spaces around the building, and people are seated at counters inside.
