Mime waiting for lunch

Mime waiting for lunch

Nov. 8, 1980: A mime, identified only as Brande, a regular on the Venice scene, waits for his lunch to be served up by a mobile hot dog vendor.

This photo by Barbara Martin appeared in the Nov. 9, 1980, Los Angeles Times. The photo accompanied a story on food vendor restrictions in Venice. The city of Los Angeles passed an ordinance banning pushcart vendors, while allowing catering trucks to stay in certain locations.

Brande indicated he would be sad if the food vendors had to go.
