Photograph caption reads: "Maurice Beare". The photograph accompanies a Valleyho! article by Larry Paulson titled Rickshaw on sale at Burbank store. Maurice Beare sits in a rickshaw that he is selling at his furniture store at Victory and Magnolia Boulevards in Burbank. After World War II, he sold his furniture factory in Durban, South Africa and resettled in Burbank. He served as treasurer to the Burbank Coordinating Council. He states in the article: "... South Africa's apartheid policy ... is not the ugly thing we have made of it in this country. It's a sort of practical parallel civilization. I've seen the good it has done. When I was there last, the natives were prospering under the Dutch-dominated Nationalist Party. For example, natives are now finally allowed to buy liquor freely in 'bottle stores' instead of buying from secret places like the illegal and evil shebeens." Photograph dated: Jan. 24, 1963.
