Description
A souvenir photograph album of the Mount Lowe Railway, a tourist line to Echo Mountain and Mount Lowe in the San Gabriel Mountains, California.
Background
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.
