Los Angeles Times, 2 Jan. 1934: 4. View of 2 men standing among automobiles half-submerged in flood debris outside of the Bohemian Gardens nightclub on Mission Road, just north of the Los Angeles County General Hospital (at 1200 N. State St). Two cars are trapped in stone-encrusted mud and another car was rolled over; lumber is in the foreground and a high wall is in the background. This local flooding was caused by the failure of an old reservoir above Bohemian Gardens, which released a great body of water into the parking lot.
