An up-ended and wrecked mechanical crawler crane appears slightly buried in ground, with its undercarriage exposed. In the immediate foreground are nearby railroad tracks. Three boys and a man look through the wreckage. Signage on the crane reads, "Consolidated Crane Service, Excavating Contractor." In the background are palm trees, shrubbery, and what appears to be a wall. Debris is dispersed throughout. A locomotive crashed into the crane as it was being towed by a truck that was crossing the railroad tracks. No one was injured. Image is possibly from a glass plate negative. Text on sleeve mistakenly identifies crane as tractor. Additionally, accident occured on March 23, 1936, not March 25, as dated on sleeve.
