Photograph caption dated December 16, 1960 reads "Workmen hoist an eight-ton section of prefabricated gas line into place at First and Hagar streets, San Fernando. The 26-inch line is being placed six feet deeper than the pipe laid in 1930 as part of a 250-mile line from Kettleman Hills oilfield to Los Angeles to (sic) that a portion of the $400,000 Los Angeles County Flood control District's Wilson Mansfield Canyon drain may pass over it. First step in the installation was the bleeding of one million cubic feet of gas from the line."
