The typewritten notation printed on the front of the photo reads "Hayward Park Hotel in 1898. Destroyed by fire in 1903. Same was located in the .........." The hotel has two storeys, and covered verandas at the front of each floor. The roof is steeply pitched. A wing of the hotel extends from the back. There is a square, covered building adjoining the back of the hotel at right center. At roughly the same level, and stretching from center to lower left, there is a row of tents---four tent/cabins, and one teepee-shaped tent. A possible use of the tents is as overflow for sold out rooms. Orchards and a scattering of houses are in the flatlands on the far side of the hotel.
