Photograph (engineering notebook photoprint) looking west on 37th Avenue from point 100 feet west of Speedway showing sand on surface of Speedway, Los Angeles County. Sand deposited by sea at high tide. This was the result of high tides (6.8 feet and 6.6 feet), accompanied by heavy ground swells and breakers which did considerable damage to piers and ocean front property between Hermosa Beach and Santa Monica along the route of the proposed "Ocean Front Walk" location of State Route 163. The high tide on 25 January occurred at 8:52 A.M. and measured 6.6 feet. This photograph was taken with the ebb tide at about 10:22 A.M. Also visible are: house (left), oil drilling building and derrick (right), pedestrian, ocean, utility poles and lines, fire hydrant, tail end of an automobile. Legible signs include: "Speedway".
