It's 1942 and we're back in San Francisco for another look at one of the many fine establishments made even finer by the installation of Buckley Music System's "Music Box." The eatery is Andy Wong's "Fair Famous" Mission Trails Restaurant, Harvey Lum, manager, at 500 Sutter Street. Close your eyes and you can practically hear Padre tolling the mission bell while the brothers pound out their tortillas. 8x10 inch acetate negative, photographer unknown.
