Photograph of an exterior view of Lick Observatory on Mount Hamilton in Santa Clara, showing other buildings and a horse pen in the foreground, 1890-1899. The three buildings of the Lick Observatory sit atop Mount Hamilton in the left background of the image, with the large dome of the telescopic refractor at the right of the group. An unpaved road winds through the foreground to the observatory, passing the low, clabpboard buildings that sit amidst the vegetation on the fore-and centergrounds. A horse is penned in the center of the image, while an automobile drives down the road to its left. Other buildings are visible on the horizon in the right of the image.
