Also included is the Luckhaus Studio collection of architecture, fashion, the movie industry, sports and street scenes, images which Morris obtained in 1939. View 9: A little blond girl, identified only as Pixie, can be seen "au natural", wading in the surf at this unidentified Southern California beach. She is holding a small pail in her right hand, which she has filled with water. The tide foams at her feet before being carried back into the vast, empty ocean.
