Photograph of a panoramic view of Los Angeles from First Street and Hill Street looking southeast, ca.1887. Several palm trees can be seen in the right foreground. The roofs of dwellings dominate the foreground, while commercial buildings of downtown Los Angeles predominate in the distance. A large building with a clock tower reading 1:12 is on the hill at left. A few horse-drawn vehicles and pedestrians are visible in the street below at right. Legible signs include: "Job printing", "[...] Jevne", and "Telegraph office".
