On back: "ASSOCIATED PRESS PHOTO FROM SAN FRANCISCO. CAUTION: USE CREDIT. 'GOING ABOARD' TO TAKE CENSUS - The Census bureau sent Helen Leslie Mabbott to the rocky Farallon islands, lighthouse station 25 miles west of San Francisco on March 28 to start the 1950 census. The water around the island is too rough for normal landings so a boom is used. Here Miss Mabbott (center seat) 'comes aboard' in the station whaleboat. The official census starts April 1, but because of ideal weather conditions a census enumerator was sent to the island on March 28. ASSOCIATED PRESS PHOTO. FX OX1 NY neg ott 3-29-50 stf-ekb".
