Photograph of an aerial view of freeway over an unidentified flooding river, 1938. At center, the wide river extends from the bottom to the top of the image. Towards the top, a tangle of freeway exchanges cross from one bank to another, automobiles traversing their length. At right, city buildings can be seen in closely-spaced blocks. At left, the area appears less developed, although what appear to be industrial buildings are set close to the river's edge. Photoprint reads: "This photograph is loaned to you.
