Description
Photograph of a panoramic view of North Figueroa Street, looking south from Spruce Street, showing construction equipment, November 1935. Dirt hills border each side of the Figueroa Street site, indicated in the image by two dirt lanes amidst vegetation. Two single-story buildings with pitched roofs sit in the left centerground, along with two automobiles and piles of beams. A track with wooden ties runs parallel to the right lane of the Figueroa site
a ramp or piece of debris sits on the track at the end farthest from the camera. The hazy skyline of downtown sits at the background, with City Hall in the center of the image.
