Photograph of an exterior view of the Abbotsford Inn on the corner of Eighth Street and South Hope Street, Los Angeles, ca.1908. People are posed along the porch to the left of the inn, in front of which a riderless horse-drawn carriage is parked along the sidewalk. The Inn itself is three stories tall with a tower-like structure at each corner, sided with clapboard. Balconies are visible attached to the upper levels on the right side. Trees and utility poles obscure the building to the right, where a second carriage can be seen. The street shows streetcar rails embedded in it.
