Content/DescriptionThree-quarter view of house and part of yard with a row of young trees. The house has a widow's walk on top. Location of home is not stated, but is believed to be the Hollister home at Monterey and Fourth Streets in the town of Hollister. This home was sold to J.I. Hodges and later became the Montgomery Hotel. (This tentative identification is based upon comparison to a print reproduced in "East of the Gabilans", by Marjorie Pierce.)
