Photograph of a view of the flowers and palm trees in Eastlake Park (later known as Lincoln Park), [s.d.]. In the foreground is a beautiful garden of flowers surrounded by a short wire-mesh fence. A footpath circles around this garden and branches off into a straight path that leads to a bench in the distance. Nearby on the footpath are two benches facing each other. On the grass behind the benches and all the way down to the bench at the end of the footpath is a column of palm trees (one on each side of the footpath). Other trees are visible behind the column of palm trees as well as in the distance.; "Lincoln Park (formerly East Lake Park), which was a major tourist destination, boasts a nearby zoo and an alligator farm in addition to boating and lavish gardens in the early part of the century. Today, the park is best known as the location of Plaza de la Raza, established in 1970 in response to a city plan to demolish the historic boathouse, the organization has become the leading multidisciplinary cultural arts center for Latinos in Los Angeles." -- unknown author.
