Description
Photograph of Ryan Airport, showing a dirt road at left, [s.d.]. The edge of an automobile roof is partially visible to the left, just above a narrow dirt road that curves into the center distance. At center, more automobiles can be seen parked in front of a building that reads "Pacific Air Transport. Air Mail". Farther left, a second sign reads "See Los Angeles from the air". Two planes can be seen in the field at right.
Writing at the bottom of the image reads: "Altitude 200 feet. 600x2400 feet. 2400 foot runway. Level. Weeds. Adobe soil slippery in rainy weather. Wind SW. Telephone, oil, gas, water, etc. Regular northern air mail terminal making night flights on schedule. Power lines in close vicinity (4 sides). Baldwin Hills to south. Ryan lessee".
