I happened across this brief description of the woolen mills on Pearl Street.

found under the heading "Manufacturers (1871-1880)"

"History of Los Angeles County" copyright 1880. https://archive.org/details/historyoflosange00wils

In this description 'ditches' are used to transport the water. -no mention yet of the elevated flume visible in FW's photograph above.
