The historical pageant, La Fiesta de la Rancho San Jose, at the Los Angeles County Fair celebrated the one hundredth anniversary of the first Spanish settlers, Don Ygnacio Palomares and Don Arcardo Vejar to the Pomona Valley.
A young girl, Mary Lou Weaver, sits in a reclined model pose facing left of the camera. Wearing a loose dance costume, she has her head tucked into her chest, with her hand on her chin. Weaver sits on a carpet with geometric designs, against a backdrop with what appears to be a rainbow or target. The young dancer was part of the Meglin Kiddies performing arts school, which was renowned for supplying Hollywood studios with a bevy of background child actors, singers, and dancers for their movies. The newspaper caption incorrectly names Weaver as Meglin Kiddie.
