Photograph of Mertie West looking at charts posted in the storefront window of Pan American World Airways. A street stretches across the foreground on an upward angle from right to left. Mertie West stands in the near distance at center with her back to camera. She faces the shop window and looks at something posted in the window. The window extends to Mertie's right. Etched in the window it reads, "PAA The System of the Flying Clippers PAN AMERICAN WORLD AIRWAYS." To Mertie's left, the front door sits back from the sidewalk. Etched into the glass of the door, it reads, "ALASKA SERVICE SEATTLE KETCHIKAN JUNEAU WHITEHORSE FAIRBANKS GALENA NOME McGRATH BETHEL." Another window and door sit to the left of that door. In the window at left, it reads, "CANADIAN PACIFIC." A doorway also stands along the right frame. An awning in the streamline moderne-style hovers over the sidewalk.
Photograph of Mertie West sitting beside a picture window at Chateau Lake Louise and looking out at the landscape. In the foreground, Mertie West sits in a chair at right. She sits in profile, facing left, but looks through the picture window behind her. A small table stands along the lower left edge and curtains hang down beside the window, along the right edge. The picture window spans the width of the image and extends beyond the top frame. A view of the adjacent landscape is framed by the window. The landscaped grounds of the hotel lie beyond the window, lining its bottom edge. Further back, Lake Louise stretches across the image. At the far end of the lake, mountains rise to the right and left. Victoria Glacier sits above Lake Louise at center.

A wide sidewalk enters frame along the bottom edge at left and stretches back towards center. In the foreground at right, a car in partial view is parked along the curb, facing camera. Two men lean against the car and face left. Just beyond them, in the near distance, Mertie West stands along the street curb. She stands in profile facing left, but turns her head to camera. Men walk along the sidewalk to the left of her and away from the camera. The New York Stock Exchange building lines the far left side of the sidewalk. It enters frame from the left edge and stands in partial view. Decorated corbels support balconies that extend outward from the building's second-story. An American Flag and a United Hospital Fund flag also extend out from the building and fly over the sidewalk. In the distance at right, Federal Hall National Monument stands in partial view. It is viewed from its front facade. Columns line its portico, supporting an entablature and pediment. A statue stands outside the front of the building. Surrounding buildings in the Financial District rise in the background.
