Even entertainment czar Sid Grauman loved Mount Lowe! One of the early advertising cards from Grauman's Egyptian Theatre, which opened in 1922, shares with tourists the following:

The back side of the card (2.5" by 4.5") shows the distances from Los Angeles to outlying areas from Alhambra to Wilmington, and, of course, Grauman's Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, highlighted in red.
