Caption on the verso of the image reads, "A famous Pacific Electric excursion trip was the Mt. Lowe trip. From Los Angeles, sightseers took a Pasadena car to Altadena and Rubio Canyon, transferred to the cable car on the incline, went up 62% grade to Echo Mountain, and then took a narrow-gauge trolley car to Alpine Tavern on Mt. Lowe. Despite the spectacular nature of the run, not a single accident was recorded. Photo shows transfer point to cable car, the incline and car appearing in upper left left of the picture."; For similar view, see image 00070123.
