Description
Photographic portrait of the entrepeneur Colonel Robert Symington Baker, co-founder of Santa Monica, [s.d.]. Baker is shown in full figure at center, dressed in a jacket with tails and a top hat. He holds a crenulated cane in his right hand, leaning his weight on his left leg. A curt, salt-and-pepper beard is visible growing from his chin. A tree is visible behind him, but may be a photographic set.
