Photograph of a hand colored photo of a lily pond in front of the Botanical Building in Balboa Park, San Diego, ca.1900. A pond containing green lily pads and pink flowers is visible from the foreground towards the background. A tall building is visible behind the pond, and has a brown dome-shaped roof composed from what appear to be wooden sticks. Below the roof, the building is composed of white archways. Four people can be seen standing in front of the building, while trees are visible in the background and directly in front of the building.
