Depiction: A large group of people fill Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley as they celebrate the 4th of July. A large spray of water hovers over the crowd due to a hydrant being opened. Downtown store signs are clearly seen in the background. Photo caption reads: Cooling off in Berkeley. Street people of Berkeley turned on the fire hydrants during the heat of a warm afternoon festival and revolution celebration. The police came along and turned the hydrants [off]. The crowd of people expanded from a parking lot into Telegraph Ave., a main street. No violent incidents were reported.
