Possibly related to the article "'Los Angeles Own' – the 160th U.S. Infantry," Los Angeles Times, 25 July 1926. The article states: ... the five designations of the regiment from first to last: The Los Angeles Guard, the Eagle Corps, the Seventh Regiment, the Ninth Infantry, and the 160th Infantry, "Los Angeles Own." The crest is that prescribed for the National Guard organizations of California. ...
About 150 uniformed soldiers, most in campaign hats with rifles on shoulders, most marching in lines on Exposition Blvd. between train in left background and cars in right foreground, with about 15 civilians near cars. Some of the women wear cloche hats (popular 1920-1933). The Science and Technic Building (aka Flatiron Building or S&T) at the intersection of Exposition Blvd. and Figueroa Blvd., on the campus of the University of Southern California is in the background. A sign reading "College of Dentistry..." is painted on the side of the building; this building began to house the students in the first 2 years of the dental school program in 1920. The Exposition Park Armory is across the street, out of the frame of the photograph, on the right.
