Photograph of an aerial view of Long Beach, looking northeast over the city from the ocean, December 8, 1955. The shoreline can be seen in the foreground, and several structures are visible near the water, including the Municipal Theatre and the amusement pier. The city contains thousands of small buildings divided by a broad grid of roads. The buildings thin out in the background, and large agricultural fields are visible in the distance. A tall mountain range runs across the image in the background. Photoprint reads: "Aerial Photography, Pacific Air Industries, 725 E. Third Street, Hemlock 5-8326, Long Beach 12, California, reorder number 55-4105."
