The establishment of the Lowe Observatory and the coming of Dr. Lewis Swift were great events not only for the Professor, but for Pasadena, as well. The original plan was to locate the Observatory below the hotels, but at the last minute the site was changed to a ridge several hundred feet higher. MOUNT LOWE, The Railway in the Clouds, page 78.
