View of automobiles toppled by flood outside of the Bohemian Gardens nightclub on Mission Road, just north of the Los Angeles County General Hospital (at 1200 N. State St). A woman is crouched over looking at one of the cars on the right. A high earth embankment with a ruined wooden fence at the top is in the background. This local flooding was caused by the failure of an old reservoir above Bohemian Gardens, which released a great body of water into the parking lot.
The heaviest rainstorm in a 24 hour period in the history of the local United States Weather Bureau dropped 8.27 inches of water on December 31, 1933 to January 1, 1934, resulting in flooding and landslides throughout Los Angeles.
