At center, from left to right, Alice Phelan and B. F. Enyeart, Burbank Schools Superintendent, pose in front of the framework for the Burbank City Schools' float entry into the Tournament of Roses. They both stand in profile, facing left, but turn their heads towards camera. Alice Phelan holds onto the framework behind her as she casts her gaze downward. The incomplete float stands in partial view behind them. Its design appears to emulate tracery and stained glass elements seen in Gothic architecture.
The camera looks across the Rose Bowl Stadium's field during the game between Alabama and Stanford. In the near distance at center, Jimmy Angelich (52) of the Crimson Tide runs towards camera with the football. He appears to have a clear pathway. Nearer to camera and to the right of Angelich, Stanford no. 22 runs toward Angelich. A referee stands in partial view along the left edge. At left, goalposts rise behind the play. In the background, spectators fill the stands.
The Stanford football team runs through drills in Brookside Park prior to the 1935 Rose Bowl game. At center, the players tackle each other. The far side of the practice field is lined by hedges. Spectators stand in front of the hedges at center and some peek over the hedges at far right and far left.
