View of the Huntington Hotel damaged by the Long Beach earthquake, with rubble flowing down an exterior stairway. Two men are at the bottom of the stairway, 2 men stand on the banister on either side and 2 men stand at the top of the stairway. The hotel (built in 1907, located at 1401 South Oak Knoll) was repaired and in use until 1989 when it was torn down.
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.
