Description
Although they were beautiful sights, with clear mountainous backgrounds, the citrus groves of Glendora were not so lucrative back in 1896. The struggle for water was still going on. Marketing facilities were poor. Discovery of more water soon brought prosperity. This is a view of the peach and orange orchard of J. H. Womsley.
