Any Ideas?

Picture 1I found this image extremely interesting. For one, it is remarkably clear and detailed considering the era and the presence of movement. But I can’t figure out the location or the precise year. The LOC websource where I found the image states simply: “general view, Los Angeles California, between 1880 and 1899.”

That’s not particularly helpful. I’m thinking that the shot is closer to 1899 – judging by the clothing and the well-manicured grounds. Any ideas?

With compliments,
