Following historic 1933 earthquake, curious survivors walk through wreckage covering downtown Long Beach shoreline. Three year-old roller coaster Cyclone Racer stands intact in The Pike, Long Beach's beachfront amusement zone. Buildings visible in the background include the Breakers Hotel (right, dark-towered building behind roller coaster), the Ocean Center Building (light-towered building behind roller coaster), Heartwell Building (center, with slightly pitched roof), the Jergins Building (building with light band of stone at top), and Roxy's Naval Clothiers (in slight foreground).
