Description
Photo of a new housing development with signs reading "See Model Home, Burbank Gardens, Sanitary Sewers Installed and Paid For" and "Brand New Single Family 3 Bedroom Home." According to a Burbank Citywide Historic Context Report written in 2009, "By 1944, rationing restrictions that had been in place during the war were gradually lifted. As a result, many new homes filled in vacant lots of the original Magnolia Park development. Also by this time,several duplex apartment buildings were constructed by Fritz B. Burns as part of 'Burbank Gardens' along Fairview Avenue near Verdugo Avenue in what had been Magnolia Park."
