Original photograph has a vertical crease in the middle of the picture.
Photograph caption dated November 30, 1963 reads "Valley Times photographer George Brich catches the two main elements of cross country running--loneliness and crowds--in these pictures taken at the East and West Valley League finals Wednesday on the Pierce College Course. The picture at the left shows the start of a race as dozens of runners jockey for position. Yes those are cows in the background taking in the excitement. The picture above shows the strain and exhaustion that come with cross country running, as Kim Ellison of Birmingham High School heads for the finish line and a first place finish (pictured)." Pierce College is in Woodland Hills. See image 00157116 for additional photo in this series.
