Hobby shops in L.A. area?
« on: May 20, 2018, 07:24:18 PM »
I think this topic has been covered.  However, I would like to talk with anyone who visited some hobby shops in the L.A. area during the '40s to '6os

I lived in South Gate and Downey during that time.  My closest shop was Walt's in South Gate.  After I was able to drive, I visited Snyders in south L.a., home of Modelcraft kit models.  In the mid 1950s, I worked with Bob Dunham establishing his hobby shop and helping with the design of his Orbit 10 channel reed receiver.

I never got around to visiting any of the shops in East L.A.
