Looks like a book of matches before they had lighters. I would guess this place was an old Turlock dive bar. A place like our current Staley's maybe?

It was owned by Manuel Sousa. Bob Kearney was a bartender there. This is where Jura from Jura's Pizza started. He stole their recipe and opened up his own pizza parlor.

There was a time when Manuel Souza decided to run the restaurant like a San Francisco style steakhouse. The steaks were in a glass coldcase right when you walked in the door. You could pick out the steak you wanted. Best steak dinner you could get in town at the time. When son Dan took over it became a pretty rowdy bar with all kinds of "stuff" going on.
