From left to right: Agnes and Forrest Whitaker stand between a cabin (left, partial view) and another small structure (right) in the snow-covered Minnelusa area of Big Bear Lake. The photographer looks up to them from the base of a small slope. Another dwelling can be seen in the background on the right.
The Wells cabin (just left-of-center) sits in the snow-covered and wooded area of Minnelusa Canyon at Big Bear Lake. It is partially obscured by an outcrop of boulders. Additional cabins can be seen in the background in the upper left corner and in the lower right corner, in addition to an automobile in the lower right corner.
Photograph of Forrest Whitaker sitting in a boat and rigging up his tackle while fishing on Big Bear Lake. The boat spans the width of the foreground and extends back towards center. Wood plank seating stretches horizontally across the image. Along the bottom edge, a cushion sits at center atop a seat. Forrest Whitaker sits in the back of the boat at right. He faces towards the camera, but looks down at the tackle he is rigging. Beyond the boat, Big Bear Lake stretches into the distance. A nearby shore stands in the background at left.
Photograph of Agnes Whitaker, Mertie West and Forrest Whitaker standing at the top of a driveway leading up to the Siemsen's cabin at Big Bear Lake. They are seen from a low-angle view. A wide dirt drive, lined by loose rocks, enters frame along the lower right edge, curving slightly as it slopes upward towards center. At right and atop the small incline, stands, from left to right, Agnes Whitaker, Mertie West and Forrest Whitaker. All 3 face slightly left as they look to the camera. Behind them, the ground slopes upward again. A cabin (partial view) stands behind them, entering frame from the right. To the left of the cabin, Elizabeth (left) and Al (right) Siemsen stand amidst a cluster of loose rocks. At far left, building materials sit in a pile. Trees line the background. Opaque white patches occupy the lower left and lower right corners, dissipating as they extend upwards along their respective edges.
Photograph, from left to right, of Mertie West, Agnes Whitaker and Forrest Whitaker sitting in their boat as they launch from the wharf and into Big Bear Lake. The hull of another boat sits in partial view along the bottom edge in the foreground. Behind it, in the near distance at left, the boat occupied by Mertie West, Agnes Whitaker and Forrest Whitaker enters frame from the left. It appears to sit on a ramp as it angles into the water from the left. Mertie West stands towards the front of the boat at left. She is in profile, facing right. Ahead of her, Agnes Whitaker sits at center. She casts her gaze downwards as she shifts supplies around the boat. At the boat's stern, Forrest Whitaker sits. He faces slightly right and tinkers with the boat's motor. Beyond them, Big Bear Lake stretches across the image and into the distance. Silhouetted mountains rise from the opposite shore. Opaque, wide, white patches occupy the lower left and lower right corners, dissipating as they extend upwards along their respective edges.
A photograph taken of the Wells cabin and other neighboring cabins as viewed from a hillside in the Minnelusa Canyon area of Big Bear Lake. The Wells cabin (center) is mostly obscured by a tree and an outcrop of boulders. Neighboring cabins are in the background on the left and right.
Members of the Wells, West and Whitaker families stand outside the snow-covered Neil Wells cabin in winter. Neil Wells is front and center shoveling snow and smoking a cigarette. Behind him, from left to right: Mertie West, Agnes Whitaker, Frances (West) Wells, H. H. West, Jr. and Forrest Whitaker stand on the cabin's front porch.
H. H. West stands atop a snowbank near his parked Buick and (from left to right) H. H. West, Jr., Mertie West and Frances (West) Wells sit on the front bumper of the Buick. A dog sits on the ground in front of Mertie West.

Photograph of Forrest Whitaker's cabin at the corner of Talmadge Road and Lakeview Drive in Big Bear Lake, as viewed from the front. A grassy lawn stretches across the foreground and back towards the mid-ground. In the near distance at center, Forrest Whitaker's cabin stands up a slight elevation. It is viewed at an angle from the front and left side, facing right. Logs support the bottom portion of the ranch-style cabin. A set of steps approaches the wide, open porch from the left. The porch stretches across the front of the cabin. An addition juts out from the left side of the cabin. Tall pines stand on the slope that rises up behind the cabin. Another cabin stands in the distance at left. Wide, opaque, white bands originate from the lower left and lower right corners, dissipating as they extend upwards along their respective edges.
