This photograph depicts a Houston, Texas concrete statuary business’s outdoor storage facility, which became a breeding ground for Aedes aegypti, and Culex quinquefasciatus mosquitoes, due to the presence of water collections within the statues, where females could deposit their eggs. The image was captured during a 1964 St. Louis Encephalitis (SLE) epidemic.
