Passing through


Interstate 5 passes through Camp Pendleton Marine Base in California. Acquired by the Marine Corps in 1942, the base today has more than 2,600 buildings and 500 miles of roads. This photo was taken in May 1975 for the Documerica project, the Environmental Protection Agency’s program to photographically document subjects of environmental concern during the mid-1970s.
