BLA brownderbyprotest

A 1980 protest to save the Brown Derby from being demolished. The fear at the time was that it would be replaced by a high-rise building. What ended up being built on the site was a mini-mall called The Brown Derby Plaza (housing mostly Korean businesses ) with the saved bowler hat hoisted onto the second level and placed in a corner. The bowler hat has changed venues many times over the years but has largely remained a restaurant space for Korean cuisine. (LAPL) Bizarre Los Angeles
