[A View of Mineral Wells, Before the Building of the Baker Hotel]

Description:

A view of Mineral Wells from West Mountain, taken before the Baker Hotel was built. The picture therefore predates 1929.
Just to the left of the upper center is the Hexagon Hotel. To the right of that, almost at the upper center, is the Standard Well and Amusement Park. On top of the hill are homes on what is now Northeast 4th Avenue. Some of these houses (especially the one with columns) are still in existence today [2009].
At the southern base of the hill, the house which Mr. Pratt restored in 2006-7 can be seen next to the Sanatorium. The Hexagon Hotel and the Standard Well no longer exist.
