Golden Anchor Match Book Cover - Archives of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley - Gift of Gary Fredburg - 2008
Gary Fredburg has been building the Museum's collections of post cards, menus, matchbook covers, graduation programs and other items that when put together give important insights into Valley culture and history. I worked, when I first got out of college, for a Hughes Market in Panorama City, but have no recollection of The Golden Anchor. It was, and still may be, at the corner of Roscoe and Van Nuys Boulevards.

These items were catalogued into the collections of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley today"
