Photograph was edited for publication purposes Photograph article dated May 9, 1949 partially reads, "Anyone who came to California more than 20 years ago will recall the narow [sic], bumpy plank road that stretched for 40 miles across the sand dunes of the Great American Desert west of Yuma. Remnants of the plank road may still be seen on the shifting sands from the modern highway. And if you're souvenir-minded, rusty six-inch spikes may be picked up along the route of the old road. Viewed from a distance, sections of the plank road remind you of flat bottomed boats floating on the sea."; See images #00132293 through #00132295 for all photos in this series.
