Hundreds of World War veterans filed applications for their bonus payments on February 1, 1936, at the bureau opened by The Evening Herald and Express, in conjunction with the Los Angeles County Council of the American Legion. The photo shows lines of veterans in the lobby of the Herald-Express building, 1243 Trenton Street, where a skilled staff of workers aided the veterans in filling out their applications. The official forms were furnished by the U. S. Veterans' Bureau. Eventually 100,000 veterans in Southern California received nearly $60,000,000.
