Photograph was edited for publication purposes Photograph caption dated October 30, 1953 reads, "The center of attention is the gopher, named - for some obscure reason - Wilber. Gathered hopefully around Wilber are, from left, Fred Nason, West Coast director of Allied Van Lines, Inc.; Kersey Kinsey, of Kersey Kinsey Co., builders, and Al Dutton, West Coast terminal manager for the van line. Occasion is ground-breaking for van line's 100,000 square foot terminal building at 7231 Lankershim Blvd., North Hollywood. (P.S. Wilber was too busy fending off petting hands. Old fashioned shovel was finally brought out and ground was broken."
