Indecorously seated young man with plaid pants reading what is most probably a newspaper. After gold was discovered in California, there was an avalanche of interest in news from the West. For me, this epitomizes the theme "News from California". Noto Bene: This is only my interpetation of the image. (Matt Isenburg)
