I came across this last month going though my things in storage. They're early (probably late 50s) business cards for The Leilani Hut, and The Gay '90s. They're 1/3 the size of a standard business card.

Note the pre 1970s "exchange name" format of the telephone numbers. Here the prefix is "GE" (GEneva) but I know it as "HE" (HEmlock) as it was on later printings. I wonder when the name changed as both refer to the digits "43" so either would work for that central office in Belmont Shore at the time.
