A fuzzy photo of a worker loading cases of Eastside Lager at what is now The Brewery arts colony in Lincoln Heights triggered memories for a person who commented on LA Eastside:
“As a child in Lincoln Hts there was many a day(especially cold rainy ones), when walking home after school (Albion St, Sacred Heart), I would smell the Hops and Beer brewing and it seemed that all of Lincoln Hts was permeated by the smell of that Eastside Brewery. Strange how the scents of childhood stay with you your whole life and Lincoln Hts was full of them.
The beer brewing at Eastside/Pabst, the smells of bread baking at Log Cabin, Barbara Ann, 4S or Foix, bakerys. The smell of the tortillas baking at the old La Morenita (now King Taco) Tortilleria where the first tortilla making machine was invented and used.”
