Mount Lowe Daily News, April 24, 1921

Mt. Lowe, CA: W.W. Meador, 1921.

11 x 16 inches, 8 pp, printed in green. A few stains and short tears; very good. Single issue of this daily "newspaper" given free to tourists who visited Mount Lowe. Each issue printed the names of all the day's visitors (and other than that, content probably did not change much on a daily basis). The text describes the Incline Railway that took visitors to the top, the Lowe Observatory, and other features (searchlight, circular bridge, granite gateway, Alpine Tavern, etc), and lists various hiking and horseback trails that could be taken on the mountain. Many of these attractions are illustrated, and there are also ads for the Pacific Electric Railway, Catalina Island excursions via the new steamship Avalon, the Argonauts' Hotel in San Francisco, and Yosemite National Park.
