Photograph of plank roads and iron telephone poles stretching across the sand dunes between the Colorado River and the Imperial Valley, ca.1920. The road is in disrepair and can be seen from bottom left into the right background. Shrubs can be seen growing in the dunes, while telephone poles line the left side of the road. Two wooden poles can be seen upright in the sand in the center foreground. The road was built from 1914-1915 and used until 1926.
