- Photograph of participants in the Olvera Street memorial service for Los Angeles Times columnist Harry Carr, beneath a striped canvas awning with mourners beneath umbrellas further back. The Chito Montoya stringed orchestra plays in the foreground and singers face a microphone (for radio KMTR), in the center. It is draped with a black wreath and black-rimmed photograph of Mr. Carr bearing the farewell "Vaya Va Con Dios." Ernesto A. Romero, Vice-Culsul for Mexico in Los Angeles, wears a trench coat and glasses (right). In front of him in a black lace veil and holding a sheet of music is Consuela de Bonzo, a Mexican community leader (owner of the restaurant Casa La Golondrina at 17 Olvera St.).
