Summary expansion
The photographs were undoubtedly part of a display board that has been separated into pieces. Two of the photographs offer views of the hotel: one of the hotel in the final stages of construction, wooden scaffolding still in place, workmen posing on the upper balcony, roofers putting shingles on the roof of the cupola; and the other of the just-completed hotel, staff members on the front porch and upper balcony, the cupola now neatly shingled, and scaffolding removed. The other two photographs are oval portraits of the property owner, Abner L. Ross, a Los Angeles capitalist; and the lessee and hotel manager John G. Holborow
