This is a postcard of the third of the Arrowhead Springs Hotel. The first two were destroyed by brush fires as was this one. I think it is the most ornate of the four incarnations of this hotel.
This version lasted from 1905-1938. I think this one is from the early end of that time period.
You may note the arrowhead in the foothills above on the right. It is a natural formation gives the names to the springs, Lake Arrowhead, Arrowhead Water and many other local places.
Arrowhead Water comes form the springs here which are a hot spring. Lake Arrowhead is about 4,000 feet above it (and a just a few miles east) and is not related to the springs.
