Description
This collection includes approximately 40,000 photographs by commercial photographer Ralph Morris, who worked in the Los Angeles area from 1939-1981. His advertising and industrial clients included department stores, restaurants, the automobile and petroleum industries as well as business executives. 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.
