Photograph of a view of the Los Angeles basin, with Echo Mountain House, Observatory, and other buildings (including the Power Station, far left, for the Mount Lowe Railway) on Echo Mountain in the foreground, [s.d.]. "The City on the Mount" -- a general view from Mount Lowe looking toward Pasadena. The small dome observatory stands at the top of the grass hill in the right foreground. Roads connect the observatory to the large mountain house at left. The basin lies behind the hill with many fields and thin roads. Low mountains stand across the background.
