Description
Photograph of an aerial view of flooding near a residential area, 1938. At center, wide swells of what appears to be a river cross from the left to the right of the image, washing over the banks above. At the lower left and right, sections of road can be seen separated from each other. Above, homes can be seen spaced far apart, three to four homes on a single block, the rest filled with grass.
Photoprint reads: "This photograph is loaned to you. Please return to: Illustrator. L.A. City Planning Dept. Rm.361 F City Hall, Los Angeles, California" and "115th Photo Section Photograph. Fortieth Division Aviation, California National Guard. Griffith Park Airport, Los Angeles, California".
