Photograph of the Coast Highway passing under the Arch Rock in Santa Monica, ca.1900. The large craggy rock is at center, and in the middle of it is an arch-shaped opening. A narrow dirt road makes its way through this opening as it winds its way along the coast. The road is supported by a wooden retaining wall at right. There is a woman standing near the arch at center. Her dark clothes blend in with the rugged outcropping behind her. The Ringe family destroyed the arch in 1906 so they could move heavy equipment through the area. This is in the later stages since a road buttress has been built.
