Stagecoach pulled by a team of 4 horses with passengers departing Los Angeles for the 2-day journey to the Old Spanish Days Fiesta in Santa Barbara, where they were to participate in the parade and deliver an invitation to the Los Angeles World Congress of Rough Riders and Rodeo. On top of the coach are Jose Arias and his celebrated Mexican orchestra (Jose Arias Troubadours) playing guitars and a mandolin. The driver is Buster Trow (silent Westerns actor). Inside the coach Miss Irene Tillinghast, left (of the Los Angeles Museum of History and Science); and Orpha Klinker, right (California artist) are visible. "U.S. Mail" and "Louisville and ..." are painted on the stagecoach. A streetcar is visible behind the stagecoach.
