Planters Nut & Chocolate Company headquarters at Paul Avenue and Bayshore Boulevard
News copy from 1952:
MR. PEANUT KING OF ALL HE SURVEYS
When a boy, I'd look for the Planter's building with all the little Mr. Peanut statues on the parapets (the Sherwin Williams "Cover the Earth" sign, too) from the backseat of the car when I was entering or leaving San Francisco via Highway 101 . Looking back, it usually meant change and disruption of my circumstance: As a kid, I never knew with whom I would be living or where I would be going to school. Thankfully, I was always cared for and never abandoned or abused.
