From caption on back of photograph: "Betcha haven't seen such a mess of eating since you - well, since you last saw this spot in the flesh. Yep, it's the Lake Merritt duck pond and refuge edging Lakeside Park. That's part of the Bellevue-Staten Apartments at the left." Thousands of ducks mill around their pond and the shore of Lake Merritt. Fences surround the duck sanctuary. A single boy in the foreground is holding out feed for the birds in his cupped hand. The Bellevue-Staten Apartments are visible among other buildings in the background.
