Thelma Todd Matchbook
Here is a matchbook cover advertising Thelma Todd's Sidewalk Cafe.
The name of the place was actually "Thelma Todd's Sidewalk Cafe". Presumably the matches said "Thelma Todd's Inn" because that made it easier to get it all on the cover.
Another similar matchbook, colored red and the artwork differing in some of the details. The ocean and the sailboat are missing from the foreground of the Sidewalk Café.
It also says "Crown Match Company.", while the others said "Lion Match Co.".
Another matchbook has Thelma Todd's picture on it.
