Owens Valley residents eating at the Alabama Gates of the Los Angeles Aqueduct. This photograph may record either the barbecue held the final day of the occupation (20 November 1924) or else the meals that wives of the occupiers served. The low water in the spllway indicates that the picture was shot towards the end of the occupation. Writing on canal wall: "Please don't throw trash in the AQUEDUCT." Title supplied by cataloger.
