The See the Sierras album contains 71 black and white photographs on 68 pages taken by Frashers Foto Company of Pomona California, probably in the 1930s. The album was prepared as a promotional tool for the Robinson Pack Train in Independence, California. According to handwritten information opposite the title page in the album, the pack train, established in 1901, was the oldest in Eastern California. Allie W. Robinson, its proprietor, offered to pack deer hunters and trout fishermen to the 200 lakes and 150 miles of streams in the eastern Sierras.
