Terminal Bar & Cafe Long Ago Terminated

When I got to Los Angeles in ’78 there was still some of it left, like this bar located in a warehouse building across from the old fruit and vegetable wholesale mart in downtown Los Angeles.  Too much of this entire area has been razed along with the memories of anyone who once had a drink in the Terminal.  I have yet to find one posting of the Terminal Bar let alone the Terminal Cafe that adjoined the joint.  Being the fool that I was, all I have is this snap shot.  At the time, I wasn’t ready to have a drink in every joint I photographed and Oh Boy what a fool this guy was.  I can say that because I was that fool.

Enjoy this photo, because that’s all that’s left of the Terminal Bar.  Find more photos of long gone bars in Los Angeles here.
