The center of the display features a model of mountains and lakes. There is a sign on the front reading, "Cucamonga Alta + Loma The Land of Many Water..." In the background, a man is visible leaning on a structure. At the top of the photograph, there is a model of an elephant.
This photograph is related to Los Angeles Times article, "Orange Show Motif Excels: First Day Attendance May Reach 10,000: Fifty Million Fruit Used to Decorate Hall: San Bernardino Exposition Hailed as Finest," 19 Feb. 1926: A1.
Text from newspaper caption: San Bernardino Again Hostess as National Orange Show Opens: San Bernardino, orange capital of the world, for the next ten days is the official hostess of Southern California, the sixteenth annual National Orange Show having opened its gates to an eager public yesterday at the beautiful little city in the shadows of the San Bernardino Mountains. More elaborate, more spectacular, more colorful than ever, this year's show promises to attract a greater attendance than ever before and leave a more lasting impression of the majesty of King Citrus and his court. The photos reproduced below were taken by Times staff photographers a few minutes before the official opening of the show: Cucamonga and Alta Loma Display [Los Angeles Times, 19 Feb. 1926: 8]
