A view from the Shangri-La Hotel's terrace, Santa Monica, ca.1940
Photograph of a view from the Shangri-La Hotel's terrace, Santa Monica, ca.1940. In the foreground, a lower terrace is visible with two women on it. One of them is in a recliner reading a book, another one is sitting in an outdoor-style chair looking toward the ocean. A small round table with magazines sitting on its top can be seen between the chair and the recliner. In the middle, a part of Ocean Avenue is visible with a line of palm trees along its western side. In the background, behind the palm trees, the Pacific Ocean can be seen.
