TitleÂ supplied by cataloger. Known originally as Southern Pacific's Cornfield Yard as well as Chinatown Yard property, the site is referred to by many as the Cornfield - a nod to the past, when the parcel produced tons of corn. As of 2006, this field located just north of Chinatown and within half a mile from El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument, became known as Los Angeles State Historic Park. The City of Los Angeles dedicated it as Cultural Monument #82 for its role as the Southern Pacific's River Station railroad yard. This photo appears to have been taken from a bridge overlooking the railroad tracks. Downtown Los Angeles can be seen in the distance. Photograph dated December 2000.
