Darn it, I got there too late! This is indeed the Rose Bowl under construction, early 1920s. The first game was played in 1923.

I'm kinda hoping the Editor of our Pasadena paper knows what he's talking about when it comes to Pasadena. It wood bee like a crime if he didn't know this sorta thing. And, the Rose Bowl bldg was also my 1st thought too!

Therefore, this leads me to sniff out a different guess: miners digging out the last of our coal and/or gold reserves.

Yes, I'm also going to go on a random other option and say it has something to do with a dam being built at the bottom of Hahamongna.

Somehow I can't believe it's the Rose Bowl. I'm with Cafe, it looks like a mine. But we never had mines in Pasadena, did we? Las Flores, maybe, but that's not Las Flores Canyon. I'm stumped.

Actually, Petrea, I DID wanna 1st say the construction of the Rose Bowl. But Frank is an earlier riser who beat me to it. So, I offered a different reasonable answer.
