View 1 - Aerial view shows several women forming a circle on one of the numerous beaches in Southern California. They are lying on the unidentified beach, holding hands, with each one wearing a number on her torso. Another woman sits in the middle of the circle, next to a large "dial", which points at 11:55 on this human clock. "Father Time" and "Baby New Year" sit next to a bell with the number "1933", which is directly over the number 12. This appears to be a publicity photograph showing the countdown to 1933.
