This photograph is possibly related to a similar one of a damaged aqueduct pipe captioned, "Views in Owens River Valley Above—The power plant, X showing where second explosion took place. Center—The blown out section of pipe. Below—No Name Canyon, scene of Friday’s dynamiting," Los Angeles Times, 29 May 1927: 2
This photograph is possibly related to a different photograph of the same damaged Los Angeles Aqueduct pipe that appears with the article, "Six Hundred Police Ready to Balk New Dynamiting: Squad Rushed to Owens Valley after Second Aqueduct Outrage at Big Pine Power House Police Ready to Rush North," Los Angeles Times, 29 May 1927: 1
An aqueduct pipe in the mid-ground enters frame from the right and stretches across the image, towards a hillside at left. Concrete feet elevate the pipe above the ground. It stops at the base of the hillside where a section of crumpled and twisted metal pipe sits. The damaged section of pipe stretches towards camera and out-of-frame at left. The hillside slopes upwards to the left. Rubble and rocks are strewn across the ground surrounding the pipes.
