Photograph of an exterior view of the A. W. Bannister hay, grain and storage building in Bakersfield, ca.1900. The large building is L-shaped and stretches across the entire image. Large stacks of hay bales can be seen under the high roof at center, while a large opening at right allows hay wagons to pass through the structure. Two large flatbed wagons can be seen at center, each pulled by a team of eight mules and loaded with bales of hay. A smaller wagon is visible in the foreground at center, while an empty flatbed is at right. The words "Crown Flour Depot" appear on the roof of the building at left.
