Munchbox in the 50's

The Munchbox was built in 1956 and stands at 21532 Devonshire in Chatsworth. It looked very much back then as it does today judging from these fun now and then photos.

Back in 1969 it is said that Charlie could get a root beer float or a hot dog while waiting for Sadie to finish her shift as a topless dancer across the street at the Candy Cat. The Candy Cat by the way is still in operation today because, as its yelp reviewers reveal, everybody likes boobs and beer.

Also just across the street is a supermarket (formerly Gateway Market) where the girls would dumpster dive.

Thanks to Stoner Van Houten and Valley Relics Museum for the pic.  Mansonblog visited the Munchbox back in 2013, you can see that post here.
