This is wonderful information. I live in the Highland Park area of Los Angeles and wondering if anyone has addresses for the Mannings Coffee shops in LA?

On the rooftop of a historic building on Figueora Street/old Route 66, we have a large sign with Mannings Coffee Store cut out where neon used to be. It was a combination neon and opalescent glass and we're in the process of preserving to get the sign back in working order. So are there any pictures, images, reference research to other rooftop signs for Mannings out there?

We'd love to know that this location was part of the Mannings family company. The sign is located at 5707 North Figueroa Street, Los Angeles 90042 (formerly the street was named Pasadena Avenue). It's half way between Pasadena and downtown Los Angeles.

Any info would be greatly appreciated!
