Description
Title supplied by cataloger.
View 6: Numerous young men stand in a long line, possibly a chow line, since all of them appear to be holding tin plates and cups; several of the men are shirtless. A few tents have been pitched in the camp area, with the San Gabriel Mountains as their backdrop. When not eating or resting, these men pile into several army trucks and go up into the mountains behind Azusa for the purpose of reforestation. The activity is similar to the Civilian Conservation Corps of the Depression.
