Access to this collection is generously supported by Arcadia funds. Mourners pray at a temporary altar at the Olvera Street memorial service for Los Angeles Times columnist Harry Carr. The altar contains a small statue of the Virgin Mary lit candles and a potted poinsettia. One woman holds a Crucifix and others hold lit candles. In another photograph of this scene (image ark no. 21198/zz002hb1s5), a table with a checked table cloth suggests that the location might be a restaurant (perhaps Casa La Golondrina at 17 Olvera St., owned by Consuela De Bonzo, a Mexican community leader who spoke at the service). Text from negative sleeve: 3100. 1/13/36. Olvera Street. Doings for Harry Carr. 1-11-36.
