That photo of Bob Crow in the picture Bigbro posted from the lobby of Mr. C's....



came from a Life Magazine piece from when Crow went to England to buy the Queen Mary for Long Beach.




The image was also used in an ad for the restaurant.



Bob Crow also owned a Chinese restaurant called Crow's.

Wow...I didn't know that! I wonder if the Helen Dell mentioned in the ad was the same Helen Dell that was the organist at Dodger Stadium back in the day?

Sharp observation A-Frame. That is the same Helen Dell at the organ. She played several clubs in the area before joining the Dodgers in 1972.
