Photograph of a hand colored photo of a lily pond in front of the Botanical Building in Balboa Park, San Diego, ca.1900. A pond containing green lily pads and pink flowers is visible from the foreground towards the background. A tall building is visible behind the pond, and has a brown dome-shaped roof composed from what appear to be wooden sticks. Below the roof, the building is composed of white archways.
