Warehouses at the toe of the Fourth Avenue landslide in Anchorage
Warehouses at the toe of the Fourth Avenue landslide in Anchorage were destroyed by compressional buckling and foreshortening. Much of the supply of food and drink for the city was stored in these buildings, and they were guarded by Eskimo units of the Alaska National Guard.
