PACIFIC ELECTRIC RR STATION ON SHERMAN WAY IN VAN NUYS

DISCOVERING OUR VALLEY  2011

At the conclusion of The Museum's recent historic walking tour of historic North Hollywood, Mr. Bob Peppermuller mentioned his interest in finding historic photographs of the Pacific Electric Picover freight station on Sherman Way just west of the Van Nuys Airport.
The Museum Community wants to help Mr. Peppermuller locate the images he's looking for, but also photographs of Abner's Yellow Barn before it burned down. 
Here are some images shared by Robert Peppermuller with The Museum's Archives. (click on the images to enlarge them.)
Contact:  Jerry Fecht if you can help on this:

Walked through the building many times when it was Abners Yellow Barn, I always had hoped that there would be some way to save it when it closed. They were going for historic landmark status when it mysterious caught fire and burned to the ground. The rubble was bulldozed and hauled away before all of the embers had hardly cooled. How nice that must have been for the new owner who had bought it just before the fire. Hmmmm.......
