The cropped image of Elsie Kellogg appears with the article, "Chatterbox." Los Angeles Times, 28 Oct. 1935
Socialites Elsie Kellogg, Jean Kennedy, and Elinor Jordan, sit atop a low-level diving board of a swimming pool at The Huntington Hotel (now The Langham Huntington Hotel). Kellogg wears a dress while Kennedy and Jordan don skirts and blouses. In the background, the rest of the pool, pool chairs, and shrubbery can be seen. The wealthy Kellogg family was visiting from Chicago and stayed in Pasadena, where they passed the time with the locals. Kellogg's profile image in the related article comes from this photograph. Kellogg was incorrectly captioned as "Kennedy" on the negative sleeve. The article also incorrectly names Elinor Jordan as "Eleanor."
