No, the above object is not a flying saucer on a stick. It is, in fact, Los Angeles' earliest attempt at street lighting in which carbon arc lights were mounted on tall poles around the city. This one was near 7th Street and Alameda, where a 20-story wireless telegraph antenna was being built. That's some skyhook, folks.
And a milestone in women's history: "The first women's campaign committee ever formed in Los Angeles for the purpose of doing a definite work in an election."
The Times is careful to note that these women can't actually vote!
