Photographer's caption reads, "Antique owner Jonathan Kramer opened "A Touch of Old," in the Desmond's building (1929) in January 2001. He started his business with four years of antiquing experience and a truck load of antiques brought from the east coast, but quickly learned that people in the Wilshire area were far more interested in Art Deco, stream-line modern, and 1950's styles than the "old vintage stuff." He quickly adjusted to what was readily available, and to what people wanted."
