Photograph article dated May 23, 1950 partially reads, "Another new business has opened its doors to add to the thriving Reseda shopping center and widen the sphere of service available to West Valley residents. Martin Wemesfelder, dealer in Dutch Boy paints and kindred lines for household decorating, opened for business during the past week in his new building, located at 7405 Reseda Blvd., with an up-to-date establishment to be known as Martin's Paint and Wallpaper Store. Wemesfelder said he made a careful study of the future possibilities for business in the area before investing in his new building and taking on the agency he holds for Dutch Boy paint products. He is handling a full line of paint accessories and wallpaper, in addition to his paint lines."
