Photo of a Burbank Public Works parking area on Lake St. with Borrmann Steel company visible in the background. This photo was likely taken by the city of Burbank in regards to a property dispute between the city and Andrew and Annette Nordahl. According to the Los Angeles Times, the city was ordered to pay the Nordahls $260,000 for a four-acre parcel that the city had taken over, through eminent domain "condemnation" proceedings, for use in a new city maintenance building and yard. The Burbank Public Works Department Yard opened at 124 S. Lake St. in May 1960, at a cost of $619,000, as a part of the city's 10 Year Capital Improvement Program. From notes on photo: “Nordahl Property 4-9-58. Borman Steel. Start of PW yard construction.”
