The Views of Donner Lake, California album contains 16 photographic prints consisting of views of Donner Lake from various
perspectives taken circa 1915. The album was created by R.J. Waters & Co., Photographers, for the Donner Lake Co. and many
of the views are of an allotment entitled "Sub-Division No. 1." The album was commercially produced, apparently promoting
"Donner Lake Sub-Division No. 1" for the Donner Lake Company. The album includes views of a horse-drawn carriage mounted on
skates on the frozen lake, rudimentary roads (including Lincoln Highway), the beach in front of Sub-Division No. 1, a panorama
of the lake looking west, and scenes taken from the snowsheds surrounding the lake. Also included are views of China Cove,
a swimming beach, moonlight on the lake, and Donner Lake Camp.
