A mangled section of pipe is viewed close-up as it sits in the foreground at right. Beside it, a length of pipe enters frame at left and stretches back towards center. A hillside rises across the background. Along its left side, an intact stretch of the water conduit rises up the hillside. To the right of the pipe, a tunnel entrance is inset into the hillside at center.
This photograph is possibly related to a different photograph of a damaged Los Angeles Aqueduct pipe that appears with the article, "Six Hundred Police Ready to Balk New Dynamiting: Squad Rushed to Owens Valley after Second Aqueduct Outrage at Big Pine Power House Police Ready to Rush North," Los Angeles Times, 29 May 1927: 1
Possibly related to a similar one of a damaged aqueduct pipe captioned, "Views in Owens River Valley Above—The power plant, X showing where second explosion took place. Center—The blown out section of pipe. Below—No Name Canyon, scene of Friday’s dynamiting," Los Angeles Times, 29 May 1927: 2
