Recently a set of photos of Surf Rider Beach on the Pacific Coast Highway (Route 101) in Malibu, California, were featured and a small portion of the Anchor Inn Cafe was visible in one image. Today’s circa 1950 picture of the Cafe and gasoline station was taken by Bob Plunkett of Los Angeles circa 1950 for use on postcards he sold in the period.
In the first sectional expandable photo below is a good view of the open air Texaco filling station complete with a lift used for oil changes and chassis lubrication. The second image below shows the front of the Anchor Inn Cafe and the automobiles parked there in detail.
