Photograph of the exterior of the Sierra Madre Villa Hotel in Pasadena, ca.1887. The hotel, seen from afar, is constructed with two connecting sections running perpendicular to one another. The longer of the two sections runs from left to right across the photo, sporting separate seconds stories, but connected first-floors. The shorter of the two sections, which appears to be the entrance, is sideways to the camera, topped by a spire. Treetops and mountains are visible in the background. The caption beneath the photograph reads "Offered its Guests Luxury and Leisure".
