A different photograph of the same section of the flood-damaged community is captioned, "An Idea of the Complete Demolition at Points," Los Angeles Times: 09 Apr. 1926: A12
In the foreground at left and center, boulders and a large branch sit on the bank of a stream. At right, the stream flows towards the lower right corner, and stretches back towards center. Buildings line both banks. Three buildings stand at left and angle back towards center and 2 stand at right, angling back towards center. On both sides of the stream, the buildings farthest from camera suffer the most damage. At right, a cabin's roof collapses down onto the cabin. At left, the top half of the structure leans heavily over the stream. Beyond the damaged buildings, a bridge spans the stream in the background at center.
