Description
Home of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Neace at 634 Aerick Street, in Inglewood, is boosted up on trestle work and ready to be hauled away to make room for a well. Many such residences are being removed as rapidly as the job can be done, to allow derrick materials and machinery to be erected by George F. Getty, Inc. Getty, whose No. 12 well is on production, is having 15 houses moved from lots which he has leased. Photo dated September 30, 1929.
