Ask Chris: I Saw a Roller Derby Match at the Old Doll Factory on Temple. What Dolls Were Made There?

Our in-house historian has the answer

No Barbies or Chuckys can call that 50,000-square-foot space home. The nickname stems from the Derby Dolls, who hip-whipped there for seven years before vacating the spot last December. Beginning in 1928, the Krispy Kake Kone Kompany produced ice cream cones at the facility until Nestlé made the last Drumstick there in the aughts. The building will likely be demolished for condos, and those badass skaters now power-jam in a new warehouse in El Sereno.
