Nickodell LA Restaurant Matchbook (1950s)

Iconic Nickodell near Paramount Studios in Los Angeles, hangout for my Hollywood illuminaries, including Desi Arnez.

Postal regulations require that these safety matches be sent via surface transportation; we cannot send them first class, priority mail, or other air mail transportation. If you order matches, your entire order will be sent parcel post, which will take approximately 1 week longer in transit than air mail shipping.)
