Today in Photographs: September 10, 1954

This somewhat touched-up photo shows the aftermath of a $250,000 fire that damaged Perino's, the elite Wilshire Boulevard restaurant that was designed by architect Paul Williams. The cause was traced to a cigarette that had been left burning on an upholstered chair.
