Salvation Army general Evangeline Booth and Mayor Frank L. Shaw stand at a podium with several other people on the steps of Los Angeles City Hall. Booth wears a bonnet and dress, while Shaw wears a tie, shirt, and jacket. The podium is festooned with patriotic decor. An arch and part of the facade of City Hall can be seen in the background. A young man to the left is seen in an Uncle Sam costume. Booth and her Army membership were in Los Angeles for a Salvation Army parade, and met in congress to discuss their World for God campaign in which they hoped to add a million more members. Mayor Shaw and many Los Angeles citizens welcomed them to the city.
