Spectators sit in the seats lining the interior perimeter of Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The stands and spectators are below the sight line of the camera. The stands enter frame along the bottom edge, curving to the right and then back to the left. Dozens of spectators sit and mill about the stands at center. At far left, the stadium's grounds jut into view. Cars can be seen lining the inside arc of the track. The arched entrance to the stadium enters frame in the near distance at right and curves towards the left. The entrance and additional seats at left line the background.
