"The breath-taking beauty of the lotus blossoms which are in full bloom on the north end of Echo Park Lake, had delighted hundreds of thousands of Angelenos and visitors. The delicate coloring of the flowers had defied the efforts of dozens of artists who have tried to reproduce it on canvas and thousands of photographers who have tried to catch its elusive loveliness on color slides. Miyako Kurata, 7, 124 South Lafayette Place, like most of the visitors to the spot where 100 plants rise four to five-inch stems above the waters of the lake and shoot out huge elephant-like leaves three-inches across, is content to admire the beautiful blossoms which will be in full bloom for the next 10 days to two weeks."--caption on photograph
