Contruction on the Pasadena freeway tunnel?

Bellis said...

Construction of a water tunnel at Devil's Gate dam?

Cafe Observer said...

Construction of Tunnel 21 at the Rose Bowl, last century. Imho.

Margaret said...

Well, I was going to say the Freeway, but I guess the tunnels aren't in Pasadena. Bellis must be right. She almost always is.

Where no man has gone before, Pasadena edition.

Bellis is 100% correct. It is certainly at Devil's Gate....BUT i'm gonna try to one up with the "what's happening" part of the contest!

After construction of the dam and flow tunnel (shown in picture), contractor Albert S. Bent poses for posterity in 1920.

Bellis said...

ecryder, you know his name? Wow, you deserve the commemorative plaque of City Hall.

Petrea said...

Was this taken the same day Mr. Bent provided the 50 watermelons for the crowd?

I hope it is Albert Bent. Good work, ecryder. That's got to be the tunnel just to the right of the Devil's jaw, as you face him.
