Title supplied by cataloger. A decorated tally-ho, or stage, that carried 12 passengers and operated between Pasadena and Los Angeles, stands in front of the Raymond Hotel. It is filled with women wearing white dresses and carrying white parasols. Two women sitting in the front with the driver also hold banners with an R on a white background. Another banner at the back of the stage reads "The Raymond". The tally-ho is also draped in floral decorations and white fur. Located in South Pasadena, the 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.
