A recent photograph of an old railroad ticket and freight building in Van Nuys, once operated by the Southern Pacific, was recently posted on San Fernando Valley Relics Facebook page.

That old photo, of a humble, yet sturdy, pitched roof building standing in bleached noir sunlight, got me looking.

I found additional images on the Southern Pacific Railroad Structures page.

Where was this located? My guess is where the current Busway is, along either Bessemer or Aetna Streets, between Kester and Van Nuys Boulevard.

This building, had it survived, might have become the new home of MacLeod Brewing, a craft beer maker who is hoping to open near this location in 2014.
