Photograph article dated December 16, 1948 partially reads, "The breeding of Russian, or Bokhara Trumpeter pigeons is a fascinating pastime and a lucrative business for a Burbank couple. Mr. an Mrs. Charles W. Haynes of 1017 N. Maple St., have been following their hobby for about four years and beside garnering an imposing array of trophies and blue ribbons from all over the country, they have found the birds a paying proposition."
