Searchlights and Anti-aircraft Guns Comb Sky During Alarm

The Battle of L.A.
Seeking out object.

Scores of searchlights built a wigwam of light beams over Los Angeles early yesterday morning during the alarm.

This picture was taken during blackout; shows nine beams converging on an object in sky in Culver City area. The blobs of light which show at apex of beam angles were made by antiaircraft shells.

This is a piece of an article published in the L.A. Times after the famous “Battle of Los Angeles”.
