Bird's-eye-view of Palisades, beach and Long Wharf in Santa Monica, California. A train car can be seen in the center, on the railroad tracks parallel to the beach, and a horse and carriage are on the beach, with people near the water. The old "99 steps" bridge is also in center, over the coast road and the train tracks. A path and trees are along the bluff (later Palisades Park), and Ocean Avenue is on the far right, with some houses in view.
