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.
Postmaster-General James A. Farley sits on the Los Angeles Breakfast Club's sawhorse mascot, which is marked "HAM." Mayor Shaw stands to his left and Senator McAdoo to his right. Others stand around for photo. Gigantic bouquet stands in the foreground.
