McDonnell’s Wilshire Cafe, circa 1938

Exterior view of McDonnell’s Wilshire Cafe on the northwest corner of Wilshire and La Brea. The E. Clem Wilson Building is present in the background. McDonnell’s, a local chain of popular drive-ins and restaurants, took possession of the former Dyas-Carleton Cafe around 1931 and opened “McDonnell’s Wilshire Café”. It appears that the restaurant ceased operation at this location sometime after World War II.(Security Pacific National Bank Collection; Los Angeles Public Library)
