Photograph caption dated February 15, 1962 reads, "Mrs. King, 3561 Alginet Dr., watches her home, now ruled unsafe for occupancy, as it sinks and twists because of underground earth slides. The ground level where she stands was once level of bottom of house. The King family, one of three on Alginet whose $50,000 homes are breaking up, today filed suit against the City of Los Angeles for the damage, claiming the city knew about underground conditions when it issued building permits for the houses."
