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."
