Photograph of small buildings adjacent to a unidentified body of water (Los Angeles Aqueduct?), ca.1940. At center in the foreground, a small building is visible sitting at the edge of a large body of water. The simple building has a single visible window, small door, and a large sloping roof. Pieces of wood and other material lay in a disheveled pile at the base of the building. To the right, a large wooden beam stretches across the body of water. To the left, a small plank of wood is seen connecting the shore to a small wooden platform on the water. Also to the left, crates of materials can be seen sitting near a fenced area. A small truck sits near the fenced area also. To the right in the background, a single man is seen standing next to a series of foundations set in the ground. A small building is seen behind him to the right, while an automobile is visible to the left. To the far left, another building surrounded by a low wall can also be seen. In the extreme background, hills and large mountain ranges are visible. In the extreme foreground, water moves along the bank on the right and sits calmly at the center-bottom of the image. A group of plants obscure the image to the right.
