Photograph article dated July 18, 1963 partially reads, "If the Olsen Brothers ever put all their eggs in one basket, it'll be a big one. For the North Hollywood-based firm is the nation's largest independent packer of eggs. Yearly output: 80 million dozen. Annual sales: $30 million. The firm's story began in 1934 with two brothers, an egg, two trucks and a small rented garage in Van Nuys. Dean and Glenn Olsen worked as a team then, one delivered eggs to customers while the other picked up more at nearby ranches. Today the Olsen Brothers still work as a team, heading a firm with 80 trucks, six plants around Los Angeles alone, and a supply line which embraces five states."
