The white spec on top is what caught my eye when driving by. The gull had a real "birds-eye view" of the streets and the ocean a few blocks away.
The building, located in Redondo Beach on PV Blvd & Pacific Coast Hwy, had many different uses over the years. In the early '80s, it was a dance club called Annabelle's.
It currently houses an upscale grocery store, Bristol Farms, that opened here in 2000. I appreciate the daily tasting offerings of cheese cubes accompanied by spreads such as Dalmatian fig jam. Of course, the marketing strategy works on me every time.
Isn't it interesting how "Bristol" is a popular name for hotels & stores all over the world? I grew up across from Hotel Bristol in Tuzla, Bosnia. I think the word itself gives a feeling of brilliance and glamor.
Same may be true of Annabelle's for clubs - promise of excitement & fun?
Do you have a Bristol or an Annabelle's close by?
