Photograph article dated November 20, 1957 partially reads, "Conversion of Woodman avenue into a six-lane thoroughfare between Chase street to a point south of the Southern Pacific tracks moved a step nearer realization today as the Schlitz Brewing Company deeded to the city, without charge, land from its plant site needed for the project. The deed was presented to Councilman James Corman by Thomas J. Woods, resident manager of the company, who said the firm was aware of the inherent dangers of the present Woodman alignment and hoped the acquisition would expedite the project." Pictured are, City Councilman James C. Corman, left, as he accepts deed to land of Schlitz Brewing Co. from Thomas J. Wood, center, Schlitz resident manager, and Alvin Wolski, Wood's assistant.
