Emma Jessop Scripps, the wife of Frederick Tudor Scripps, poses for an Autochrome photo at Braemar, the family estate where the Catamaran Hotel in Pacific Beach sits today.

The La Jolla side of Mount Soledad can be seen beyond the colorful garden in this shot.

A replica of an Old English cottage.

Another view of the cottage, again looking north to Mount Soledad

You don't have to squint your eyes too tight to picture this area today, where the boardwalk passes
in front of the patio at the Catamaran. The Star Pine at the left may still stand on Pacific Beach Drive.
