Description
Two young women take a boat ride in MacArthur Park, formerly known as Westlake Park. In the background people can be seen relaxing on the grass, in the shade of the large palm trees. Caption reads, "Spring, wonderful spring is in the air. At MacArthur Park, the birds are singing and the flowers are blooming today as balmy weather once again returns to the City of the Angels in a full blast of glory. These two girls enjoy their first boat ride of the year while the sun beams warmly in the sky." Photo dated: March 8, 1949.
