  1. hello/ can you tell me what was 326 and a half south spring street los angeles in 1918 as my gt grandfather lived there his name was Frank Newall
    I am his gt grandson Francis Newall


    • Hello Francis,
      326 1/2 S. Spring was a rooming house above a cafe-saloon known in 1918 as Jeffries Bar because it was owned by the ex-heavyweight champion Jim Jeffries. Jeffries sold the bar in 1918 but it was still known as the Jeffries Cafe or the 326 Club; You can see a photo of 326 S. Spring in its later years here The bar entrance is on the street level; the stairs at right go up to the rooming house.


      • I remember a bar at that address in the 50s called the “numbers”.
        Can anyone else remember? It was an after hours club and a TV commentator named Paul Coates did a late night video there.


      • Hi John: I’m not seeing which address this is attached to. The Numbers doesn’t ring a bell off hand; Coated had the tv show Bachelor’s Haven in the early ’50s but I don’t have any other info.
