Googie Architecture | SAMBO’S Restaurant Chain
These photos look like they were taken just yesterday. Well, not really. They’re actually 40-50 years old (Kodak Vericolor Type L film with a 4 x 5 view camera and 90 mm wide angle lens)! Photographer Tim Putz was a personal friend of the Battistone family, the original owners of the Sambo’s Restaurant enterprise. They commissioned him from 1964 to 1970 to photograph the first 25 Sambo’s restaurants in the growing chain.
At one time there were 1200 locations across America. Today, only one Sambo’s Restaurant remains — the very first one that still stands at its original location on the beach in Santa Barbara. - Via: 1 | 2
