Charles Lawrence Collection

Charles Lawrence documented thousands of visitors to Mount Lowe, the tourist railway north of Pasadena and part of the Pacific Electric from the turn of the century until the late 1930s. This collection consists of images of visitors posed at the top of the famed incline railway. What makes this collection unique is that all photographs here exist because they were "returned to sender," meaning the tourists never received the photographic memory of their Mount Lowe experience.
