A souvenir photograph album of the
Mount Lowe Railway, a tourist line to Echo Mountain and Mount Lowe in the San Gabriel
The Mount Lowe Railway was a scenic tourist line that opened in 1894 to bring visitors to
the San Gabriel Mountains above Altadena and Pasadena, California. A portion of the railway
was a cable-driven funicular, the Incline Railway from Rubio Pavilion to a hotel called the
Echo Mountain House, which opened in 1894 at the summit of Echo Mountain. A narrow-gauge
trolley carried travelers on the route from Echo Mountain to Mount Lowe.
