Description
A panoramic view of the runway at the Western Air Express dedication celebration in Alhambra. The photograph was taken from the opposite side of the runway, facing the event, with the white terminal building on the right and two hangars in the center. Two large airplanes are parked in front of the crowd of people between the terminal building and the hangars, and some smaller airplanes are parked in and around the hangar on the left. A smaller airplane is taxiing off the runway towards the hangars. There are numerous parked automobiles on the far left, and residential areas on the far left and right. Writing in white in the bottom left corner reads "4-19-30 ; Photo by F.M. Huddleston".
