Superb original photograph showing a team of Balloon Route excursion riders gathered at the Hotel Vendome in Los Angeles during the 1890's. Certainly must of been a chilly ride as nearly everyone is heavily clothed. To the far right of the photograph the Balloon Porter is seen wearing his uniform and hat, naturally standing next to the prettiest girls in the group.
No LA smog in the 1890's to hinder visibility.
