The Argo Circa 1927
Scott Magnuson of the Argonaut sent me this 1927 photo of what is now the Argonaut. Magnuson got the photo from the daughter of the owner of that business (a Coney Island). Apparently she stops by the Argonaut about once a year when her niece visits from Florida. As you can see from the photo, this was an integrated business. Here's a photo from almost the same spot soon after the Argo opened in 2006.
They moved the bar after the fire, so that area is now table seating.
