Water, rushing over a bed of rocks in the foreground, enters frame at left and flows towards center. Beyond it and to the right, a large, mangled section of aqueduct pipe enters frame and angles back towards center. As it stretches towards center, the metal twists. Another part of the pipe lies to the left of it. Behind and to the left of the pipe, a man stands. A rocky hillside rises towards the right in the background.
Possibly related to a similar image of a damaged aqueduct pipe viewed from a different angle 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
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
