A parade float from the Womens Social Welfare Department (possibly of Los Angeles City, but more likely a unit within the Salvation Army; unconfirmed) cruises along the street, with nurses and toddlers seated inside. In the background, some city buildings are seen, and notably the foundations of a new building. Spectators and pedestrians are also seen. A car is parked across the road. Salvation Army General Evangeline 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 Frank Shaw and many Los Angeles citizens welcomed them to the city.
