Photograph was edited for publication purposes Photograph caption dated August 27, 1958 reads, "Hundreds of Valley residents passed through the portals of the Best Brands Paint store, 5151 Lankershim, North Hollywood, during the gala grand opening held recently. A giant treasure chest was a big feature of the opening as hundreds of prizes were given away. The store is the second unit in a growing chain of Valley paint outlets owned by the Margolin family, shown here grouped around ladder and 'paint dummy,' the chain's trademark. From left, Buddy, manager of the new store who was recently discharged from the Army where he served with the Paint Power Service; Bruce, understudying Buddy in the management of the new store; Pearl, office manager and bookkeeper, and Harry, owner and supervisor of both stores."
