A few cars park along the street and a neighbor's lawn stretches across the lower left corner. The San Fernando Valley is visible in the far distance.
At center, Colonel Reginald Barlow stands on a platform at the Hollywood Bowl. He dons a military uniform and faces towards the right. He rests a hand to a podium that stands to the right of him. A couple of microphones stand at the edge of the platform at far right. Behind Col. Barlow, orchestra members sit around the interior perimeter of the Bowl's band shell. The shell's arches rise behind them.
Colonel Reginald Barlow stands at center, in his military uniform, and is viewed close-up, from the waist, up. He holds a few pieces of paper up in front of his chest. Col. Barlow looks forward as he opens his mouth to speak. A concrete wall stretches behind him.
