The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
I really thought this was the one that stumped everyone. Until 5:30 am this morning, the only one to correctly identify the sign was Jill S. Thomsen -- on the Culver City Times Facebook page, who wrote "The gun store on Washington :) corner of Huron." But then, sure enough, as dawn broke over the city this a.m., Luiz Lopez came through: "Martin B. Retting on Washintgon"
Yep, that's the sign on the side of Martin B. Retting, Inc., one of the largest stores of its kind in California. The company was established in 1921 and has been in its current location at 11029 Washington Blvd since 1958.
I haven't been inside, myself, but holy smokes, look at these pix from the store's web site:
Here's the whole sign -- which I felt would be too much of a dead giveaway for our intrepid Culver CIty experts.
