Photograph of the exterior view of La Brea Food Spot from across the street, ca.1940. This large white building, located at 435 La Brea Avenue near Rosewood Avenue, has the words "La Brea Food Spot" that almost stretch the length of the building and are painted in black block letters outlined in white. To the left is a dark arrow pointing to the right with the words "Free Parking" painted in white above a striped awning that extends to the center of the building. On the right, two cars are parked on the street in front of the market. The interior of the market is dark and barely visible. A utility pole and lamp post are visible on the sidewalk in front of the market.
