9-foot-high, 4-foot-wide tire. One-of-a-kind 125-ton vehicle that does nothing but push another machine along a rocky canyon floor about 45 miles northwest of Los Angeles. They are part of a fleet of giant earth-moving equipment, mobilized by the Western Contracting Corp. of Sioux Falls, S.D., to work on the monumental Castaic Dam and Reservoir, the southern terminus of the 44-mile California Aqueduct being built in a $2.8 billion State Water Project.
Photograph of unidentified workers who worked on the large metal globe that stands in the lobby of The Los Angeles Times building to this day. The Art deco building, built in 1935, is located in the southwest corner of First and Spring streets. The lobby, today popular as "The Globe Lobby," has a circular, arched marble rotunda. In the center is this gigantic metal globe, whose surface is a map of the world, on a bronze pedestal.
