Photograph of water-skiers in Avalon Harbor in Catalina, showing the casino in the background, ca.1940. Two women are standing on wide boards behind a boat at center. They are holding parasols in one hand and ropes in the other as they navigate the choppy wake created by the boat. Two more women in bathing suits are holding parasols and looking at the viewer from the stern of the ship. In the background, Catalina Island is visible, and the casino can be seen at left. Several small boats are visible in the water, including a sailboat at left.
