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.

In the distance, H. H. West's Buick is parked along the left side of a snowy road. Mertie West, an unknown man, Frances (West) Wells, H. H. West, Jr., and a dog stand and sit around the front end of the car. Another car to the right drives away in the opposite direction.

Photograph, from left to right, of Forrest Whitaker, Hebard West and Ann West standing on a dock at Big Bear Lake and loading fishing gear into a rowboat. The corner of a dockside shed stands along the right edge in the foreground. A small dock covered in gear runs behind and parallel to it; the dock extends from the bottom edge at center and back towards the right. Several moored rowboats surround the perimeter of the dock at left and back at right. In the near distance, Hebard West stands at center with his back to camera. In his right hand he holds a few fishing rods. With his left hand, he hands a tackle box down to Forrest Whitaker. Forrest Whitaker stands, left-of-center, in a rowboat. He is in profile, facing right, and looks down as he grabs the tackle box from Hebard. Behind and to the right of Hebard, Ann West stands in partial view at the edge of the dock. She seems to stand in profile, facing left, as she watches the guys load the rowboat. Big Bear Lake stretches across the image, beyond the dock and boats. A nearby shore and a hill are visible in the distance.
