This photograph is from the 1934 excavations of Kuaua. It is unclear which direction this  photo is taken, but it is clearly of one of the better preserved rooms. It must have been incredibly exciting to excavate these interesting features when there was absolutely no sign of architecture on the surface of the site.

Charles Kelly’s description of the photograph:

“Room 25, Lummis Section, Kuaua. This  excellent room should be given especial notice because of the two good firepits, the well preserved bin, the large ventilator opening into bin from the right (Room 24) and the evidences of burning on floor and walls. Note the appearance of the typical puddled adobe walls.”
