Description
Negative shows a group of men and women participating in the 1986 y-Walk. The first person in this group is walking with both arms extended at her sides and slightly raised. A couple of people following her are waving at the camera. Some of the participants are carrying balloons and they are walking across a street under a large metal sign that arches across the street and reads: "San Pedro Square." At the base of each side of the sign are murals. On the right side Leland Stanford is depicted and on the left is his wife Jane.
