Bessie Neelly Jones Wright (Mrs. Clifford Wright), Eleanor Deiss Boyd Hollinger (Mrs. Walter H. Boyd), Kathleen Barnard (Mrs. Harold Barnard), and Mary Ruth Smart Belt (Mrs. Elmer Belt) meet to plan a party for the Women's Auxiliary of the Southern California Medical Association.
The location is the "Del Amo Gardens," which probably refers to the Del Amo Estate at 1119 Westchester Place, Los Angeles. The estate was a favorite site for local society; Dr. Del Amo often lent use of the house or its gardens to social clubs and organizations for teas and receptions. (Inventory of the Del Amo Estate Company Collection, 1908-1978, California State University, Dominguez Hills).
