Photograph of a birdseye view of the construction of City Garage in Pershing Square, Los Angeles, 1951. The park is at center and is being torn up by a steam shovel in the foreground at right. Several palm trees can be seen at center, and four wide dirt paths lead from the corners of the park to the center. Various construction supplies, including lumber and pipe segments, can be seen scattered throughout the park. Several automobiles are parked at left. Tall buildings and paved streets encircle the park in the background.
