Farb Homes sign marks vacant Montrose lot where Hollywood Vietnamese Restaurant used to cater to the late-night crowd


Soon to hail from hallowed Hollywood grounds in Montrose:
Farb Homes. -- Wo sind denn nur all die bunten Farben?  
American Gayborhood flags with Downtown Houston skyline
provide greater polychromatic appeal across the barren empty block

ON THE SOUTH SIDE: HOLLYWOOD FOOD STORE
WITH 1930s FLAIR  

This Hollywood facility to the South of the site
has not yet had its date with the demolition crew. -- nor will it likely serve out 
its days as a temporary dog adoption center like its doomed neighbor.
It may just go to the dogs without any adoption or funerary rites. 
Hollywood - gone, flattened, and fenced; waiting
for something to happen, like a revitalization if not a renaissance  
ON THE NORTH SIDE, A FAVORITE TEX-MEX
FIXTURE SINCE THE 80's ENDURES
