Description
A slightly elevated panoramic view of a residential neighborhood in Long Beach, facing north and east, with the Signal Hill oil field in the background. The neighborhood consists of hundreds of single family homes and small apartment buildings. The streets seem to be unpaved, and there are only a few automobiles parked on the street on the right. The entire horizon is lined with the oil derricks of Signal Hill. There is writing in the bottom right corner reading "No. 211 ; C.C. Pierce & Co. ; 1572 W. Pico Blvd L.A."
