1930s: West 102nd Street and Broadway
You may recall that last week I revealed matchbooks I'd unearthed from the Old Algiers restaurant. What I was after -- but have failed to turn up -- is any picture of that dining establishment. However I can tell you that the restaurant was located on the SE corner where Mama Mexico once was and now the site of Mexican Festival. And I can also tell you that its grand opening was on April 29, 1930. The NYT clip below is my source.
But Old Algiers remains a mystery...for now.
