Good Eggs L.A. opened its distribution center this month just steps away from the Los Angeles River at 2760 Clearwater St., south of the Glendale (2) Freeway. Now fresh fruits, veggies, eggs, meats and seafood are replacing the sweet confections made by the prior tenant. “Our mission is to grow and sustain local food economies,” said Max Kanter, community builder at Good Eggs, a company that works with about 70 Southern California farmers and food producers to deliver online groceries to customers throughout the Los Angeles area.

In times past, people walked to school or work and went to the drugstore for a soda pop or an ice cream cone. There were no flat-screen TVs, Internet dating, e-mails, text messages, missiles, nuclear bombs or Starbucks. Mom generally stayed home and took care of the kids and Dad would go off to work. Families felt safe enough to leave their doors and windows open at home when they went out. If one were to go to the Americana on Brand most any weekend, I believe that ?bygone? period is alive and well.
