This photograph is possibly related to a different photograph of a damaged Los Angeles Aqueduct pipe that appears with the article, “POLICE READY TO RUSH NORTH: Armed Men Prepared for New Aqueduct Trouble Investigation by Grand Jury May Be Requested State Senator Swing Offers Aid to End Feud Clew Found in Siphon Blast Detectives on Trail of City Aqueduct Dynamiters Repairs Rushed on Break in No-Name Canyon Water Department Brands Outrages as ‘Outlawry,’” Los Angeles Time, 30 May 1927: A1
Possibly related to a similar image of a damaged aqueduct pipe viewed from a different angle captioned, “Rent in Power House Feeder Pipe Where Second Aqueduct Dynamiting Occurred A gaping rent was torn by Owens Valley dynamiters in the penstock, or feeder pipe, leading to Big Pine Power House No. 3 in the second Aqueduct blast last week. It took place early Saturday morning. The destruction of the pipe did not interfere with the Aqueduct itself, but put the power house out of commission.” Los Angeles Times, 30 May 1927: A1
A segment of aqueduct pipe stretches across the image and is viewed close-up. At center, a large opening stretches on an angle across the pipe. Through it, another blast-hole is visible on the bottom side of the pipe.
