1910 Kern River from the Bluffs Looking West

This very early view of the Kern Island Canal (on the left), the river (middle) and the oilfield (right) shows the thickness of the riparian forest shortly after the turn of the century. 

(This is a detail from a panoramic view of the Kern River Oilfield in the digital photographic collection from the Library of Congress.)
