A view of the old Norton Building on Sixth Street and Broadway Avenue, in the aftermath of a fire. Fire fighters and others can be seen in the Norton's balconies and windows, and on ladders. Much of the facade has been blackened due to fire damage. Store signage in the image includes: "Lord's Removal" and "The Owl Drug Co."
View is taken from bottom of Chavez Ravine, looking up at natural ledge where 13-year-old (Rance) Eugene Wiggins was trapped. A team of rescue workers--firefighters and police--are supporting an extra long ladder aimed toward the ledge where Wiggins is obscured from view. A rescue worker stands on the highest rungs of the ladder, looking for Wiggins. The rescue team included people such as Officer G.L. (Giden Lewis) Rice and fire fighter Owen J. Stroud. The image is taken at night.
