Postmaster-General Farley sits astride the Los Angeles Breakfast Club's sawhorse labeled "HAM" for initiation into the club on July 19, 1934 at the Ambassador Hotel. He is blindfolded and has placed his right hand on a plate of ham and eggs as part of the initiation rites. Four men surround him; one man holds the plate of ham and eggs, one holds a paper (possibly initiation rites), one man stands smiling, and the last pets the sawhorse.
