Photograph of a view of the bed of the Los Angeles River near Seventh Street, showing a bridge in the background [s.d.]. The sandy river bed fills the foreground and recedes toward the center background. The banks of the river are covered in brush and lined by utility poles. A bridge crosses the riverbed in the center background, behind which hangs a cloud of dark smoke or steam. Tall buildings are visible in the distance. This image of the river bed was made prior to storm drain improvements.
