An out-of-focus photograph, from left to right, of Margaret Deming, Mertie West, Jane Deming and H. H. West, Jr. lounging on the sand in Hermosa Beach. Margaret and Mertie sit under the group's umbrella. A plaid blanket stretches on the sand in front of them. Margaret looks to camera and Mertie gazes off to the left. Jane sits behind and to the right of Mertie; she looks to camera. H. H. West, Jr. reclines in a lounging position at right and looks to camera. Behind them, other beach goers and their umbrellas dot the beach. Businesses can be seen on the Strand in the distance.
