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.
Two pictures of young children visiting the cemetery as part of ceremonies where flags are flown and flowers are placed on the graves. White crosses can be seen beside the graves. It is likely this was a Memorial Day ceremony.
