Photograph of a northward view of the United States Navy dirigible USS Shenandoah over Long Beach, ca.1920. The large rigid airship is in the sky at center, headed to the left. It is a long, light-colored, rigid, blimp-like vehicle with engine pods slung underneath. A large star inlaid in a circle is painted on the side of the aircraft. Below, the tall buildings of Long Beach stretch out across the image. There is an intersection of two large streets in the lower right corner, and one of the streets is lined with early-model automobiles. A park full of tall trees and bushes is in the foreground at right.
