View of the Raymond Hotel looking at the western facade and its landscaped grounds. Two women, one with an umbrella, stand on a path by an outbuilding. The landscaped grounds consist of cacti and other xeric plants. The photograph is a black and white print that has been hand tinted. Located in South Pasadena, Raymond Hotel was the first major resort hotel of the San Gabriel Valley and was only opened from December to April. It was built by Mr. Walter Raymond of Raymond & Whitcomb Travel Agency of Boston, Mass. and sat atop Bacon Hill which lies between Pasadena and South Pasadena. Bacon Hill was renamed Raymond Hill with the opening of the hotel in 1886. The hotel burned down in 1895 and was replaced by a second Raymond Hotel in 1903.
