South Pasadena and original Raymond Hotel

E. S. Frost & Son Photographers, Colorado Street, Pasadena, Cal. On the back is stamped C. C. Pierce & Co. Photographers, 313 S. Spring Street, Los Angeles, Cal. Written in pencil is negative number 6423 and “South Pasadena, Hotel Raymond on the hill. the railway tracks that curve through the fields belonged to the Los Angeles Terminal Railway.” These tracks parallel the bottom left of the images and make a soft “S” curve toward the Raymond Hotel. In the distance can be seen Mount Wilson and the San Gabriel Mountains, before there was a peak named Mount Lowe or an incline railway.
