The Long Beach earthquake of 1933 took place on March 10, with a magnitude of 6.4, causing widespread damage to buildings throughout Southern California. The epicenter was offshore, southeast of Long Beach on the Newport-Inglewood Fault. An estimated fifty million dollars' worth of property damage resulted, and 120 lives were lost.
View of an outdoor kitchen with food and cooking supplies in the center and a trash can emitting steam on a stove on the left after the Long Beach earthquake. A sailor in a white cap looks toward the camera. A large black metal box tended by a man might be an oven. A sign on a commercial building in the background reads "Dearborn."
