In the background is a sun obscured partly by clouds and cobblestones. The old man has a broken sign that reads, "Senior Citizens for Peace." The bottom edge of the poster has "June 23, 1967 Century City" printed in a circle, and "Souvenir of L.A. Police Dept. Love In" printed in black lettering.

This is about the antiwar demonstration in Century City, CA (a business district of Los Angeles), the first major demonstration against the Vietnam war. Scores of people were injured by police.
