Photograph article dated March 1, 1961 partially reads, "Outside 14559 Gilmore St., Van Nuys, the lines of persons were longer than usual Monday. Queued up were persons wanting jobs and waiting for the application blanks that would bring them unemployment checks two weeks later. 'It's the first day they can apply for the 13 weeks of extended benefits,' explained Grace Harwood, manager of the Van Nuys office of the California Department of Employment."
