The caption at the bottom of the photograph reads, "Lucky Baldwin's Place S.G.V.R.R (San Gabriel Valley Rail Road). Men, both on horseback and on foot, use the horse racing track owned by E.J. "Lucky" Baldwin, seen in the carriage on the far right. This was first location for horse racing in Arcadia, located on Baldwin's Santa Anita Ranch. The site later became the Los Angeles County park located at Santa Anita and Huntington. After Baldwin's death in 1909, horse racing was banned in California and the track was forced to close. Racing in Arcadia did not begin until 1934, where it continues each year from December 26th to April 20th at Santa Anita Park.
