General
Historic plate number: "46, 67, 82."
Historic plate caption: "California."
It appears that CA070049's emulsion (i.e. verso) side was labelled with a historic caption and therefore oriented as the right-side-up or correct-reading view, though this may not be the case. See also CA070002 for same image (with its orientation flipped) with the emulsion side treated as the verso.
The upper garden of Arcady in the 1930s or 1940s. Past the fountain and the two obelisks was a large semi-circular patio. Underneath the patio was an open pavilion where the original owner, George Owen Knapp had an organ.
