Photo No. 25 from The Newhall Land and Farming Co.'s March 24, 1928 report
on the March 12-13 St. Francis Dam Disaster.
This photo, "taken from the south bridgehead of the Ranch bridge on the road
leading from the highway to the Orchard Ranch Houses shows the desolate waste
now left between it and the State Highway on the north, also in the foreground how
the bed of the living stream was moved about 300 feet north and 6 to 8 feet lower
than when it formerly ran under the Ranch bridge."
Original caption by Almer M. Newhall reads as follows:
