Topless in Concord ?


On June/29/1973 The Supreme court of California did away with Topless Dancing...This is an interesting piece of Concord history that was sent to me by a reader... If you click on the picture it blows up and you can actually read the article...Under the picture is a credit for the photo to a Kathy Lee of the Times...Indicating that it is an actual picture... Does anyone know where the old PlayGirl Club was located ? I know there was a dirty movie show that was run out of town behind the Presbiterian church but I dont remember the PlayGirl Club...Thanx to Apollo Prudence for this great old picture....Italic

I know the Drop-in club was on Galindo St. across from Walgreens.
The Playgirl club may have been on Clayton road. Not positive I was pretty young back then...

WEnt to the PHill library, hit up the old phone books. Apparently The Playgirl only opened in 1971 or 2, was located at 1828 Salvio, phone numbers were 682-9799 and 689-8214.

Saw no mention of The Drop In

In the late 60's to the late 70's we used to walk to Queen of All Saints school and passed one or the other of these clubs near downtown (Galindo?). We used to always see a gaggle of girls in their garish, sequined outfits standing outside the side door, chatting and smoking. I remember wondering why anyone would go there in the daytime! Or at all!
