West family sits in their library with Daisy Kellum. There is a fireplace behind Guy West and Arleigh Lemberger, with pictures and other objects on the mantel and above. Pictures hang on the wall.

According to the negative sleeve for this set, these photographs are of the San Diego Fair, about 1912. The Home Economy Building, viewed here was not built until 1915. It is likely that this image was taken around 1915. In 1915 and through 1916, San Diego hosted the Panama-California Exposition, for which many of the buildings in this set of photographs were built. The photographs most likely document this event.

Water spans the space between the spectators and the ferry.
