From left to right, E. J. Demas, Kennard Bubier and Jeremiah De Cecca pose on the deck of the C. A. Larsen. The trio stands at center. All 3 men wear suits and look to the camera. The deck of the ship extends straight back behind them. At left, another crew member stands along the ship's rail. Behind and to the right of the group, a few more men stand. Farther down the deck at right, a ship's funnel rises. The Port of Los Angeles is visible in the distance at left.
A dock enters frame from the bottom edge at right and stretches straight back. The C. A. Larsen is moored along its left side. A truck is parked on the dock at right. Only the truck bed is visible entering frame from the right edge. At the back of the truck, a small ramp descends onto the dock and towards the ship. Workers at center guide a sheep down this small ramp. To the left of them, more workers carry sheep up a set of steps that abuts the ship. More workers and ship personnel are visible standing dockside in the distance at center.
In the near distance at center, the U.S.S Chicago is moored near Los Angeles Harbor on Navy Day. It is viewed at an angle from its starboard side. A few smaller vessels sit alongside the large cruiser. Naval insignia waves from a flag line that stretches down the ship's mid-line. The American flag waves from the ship's stern at left. Los Angeles Harbor is barely visible in the background.
