View towards the Aranbe Hotel, heavily damaged by the Long Beach earthquake. The exterior walls are missing and the street is full of rubble. A power shovel is scooping up the debris for 2 waiting dump trucks. Signs on the power shovel and dump trucks read "Owl Truck & Materials Co." In the foreground, a lone man sweeps the street with a push broom.
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.
