Adray’s Store on Wilshire Blvd., 1978

Looking northeast from across Wilshire Boulevard towards an Adray’s store and other businesses located at addresses ranging from 5557-5575. Years later, the storefronts on the right occupied by Barton’s Bonbonniere, Janet Shore Corsets, and Miracle Shoe Repair were remodeled to create one structure and replaced with a Smart and Final store. Adray’s later became a Rite Aid pharmacy. (Marlene Laskey Collection; Los Angeles Public Library)

    Rite Aid Pharmacy and Smart and Final. I bought my first tv from Adray’s. You could find anything in that store from dishes, appliances, beds you name it.

    I worked in this store at the time the photo was taken, and also a few years later, after a stint at ABC Premiums on Beverly Blvd.
