This photograph shows a view of Alta Lake from above Rainbow Lodge. Although the photograph is dated 1944, the presence of what appear to be power lines in the foreground suggests that this may have been later, after the Rainbow Substation was built on Highway 99 in 1964-1965.
Four photographs stored together, made from two negatives (two prints from each negative). They are only slight variations on the same image of snow on the mountain peaks as seen from Alta Lake, with the railway tracks in the foreground. On the reverse of one of the prints is the following annotation: "First snow on the peaks late Sept- 1978 Alta Lake".
A view of Hillcrest Lodge, taken from Alta Lake. This lodge was owned by Jack and Cis Mansell, and later became Mt. Whistler Lodge. It was located on the east side of Alta Lake, south of Lakeside Beach.
