The WRI is an outreach partnership between CSUSB and the Southern California communities we serve, driven by the vision that sustaining water resources rests on sound research, analysis and public policy collaboration. The Historical Aerial Photo Collection is comprised of images of Southern California beginning in the 1920's. The geographic areas include much of Southern California from deserts to the Pacific Ocean. The images in these flights are from the Joseph Andrew Rowe Water Resources Archives and represent various collections that are held by the Archives.
The Needles area is located in the Mojave Desert in the far eastern section of San Bernardino County, California, United States. It is located in the Mohave Valley, which straddles the California–Arizona border. Sections of this area are located along the western side of the Lower Colorado River. The Needles area is part of the Lower Colorado River Watershed. Most of the pictures contain metadata further describing the images. Detailed analysis of the pictures or reproductions can be arranged through the CSUSB WRI at (909) 537-7683. If you are in need of accommodation for a disability in order to view or understand the following images, please contact the CSUSB WRI for assistance.
