Photograph of a large airship being held down by cables as spectators surround it at a "balloon school" in Arcadia, ca.1915. The aircraft hovers slightly above the ground, pointing right, with several passengers on board. A crowd of spectators gathers around the craft, and two young girls in light-colored dresses and bonnets stand in the foreground. Several men on the left pull a cable to keep the ship on the ground. A structure is visible in the distance, while the foreground is composed of a grassy field. The background is neutral.
