The children delighted in the festivities surrounding Olvera Street, donning velvet jackets and embroidered dresses. There was an acrobatic monkey performing, as well as the Mascaras, whose masks were created by Ramon Rodriguez.
Mourners pray at a temporary altar at the Olvera Street memorial service for Los Angeles Times columnist Harry Carr. The altar contains a small statue of the Virgin Mary and a Crucifix. Six women and one man kneel and five men stand in prayer, holding lit candles. A painted brick wall has more lit candles on its ledge and the lower portion of an image of the Virgin Mary is also visible. A table with a checked table cloth on the right suggests that the location might be a restaurant (perhaps Casa La Golondrina at 17 Olvera St., owned by Consuela De Bonzo, a Mexican community leader who spoke at the service).
