This collection includes approximately 40,000 photographs by commercial photographer Ralph Morris, who worked in the Los Angeles area from 1939-1981.

Four unidentified people wearing party hats are ringing in the New Year in one of the ballrooms at the Jonathan Club. They all pose in front of a large clock, which shows the hands at "11:58". Christmas garland and pinecone decorations can be seen to their left. The Jonathan Club, located at Sixth and Figueroa streets, is a 12-story brick building built in 1924 and occupied in 1925. Architects: Schultze & Weaver. The year that this photo was taken is unknown.
