The Golden State Project was a large-scale Burbank redevelopment endeavor in the 1970s and 1980s in the "industrial northwest section" of the city, according to the Los Angeles Times. This photo was likely taken at the beginning of construction at the intersection of Avon St. and San Fernando Blvd. Former Burbank mayor John Whitney (1963-1964, 1968-1969) is at center. "Jim Algie, City Manager; Jack Whiney, City Treasurer; Dave Augustine, Bandy Hinge Co. Production Manager"--back of photo.
