Pasadena, a quiet and conservative residential city, lies 10 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains which stand like a great Spanish comb behind it. Dignified, reserved Pasadena is a city of many churches. Its well-bred quiet is not broken by the whir of machinery. Indeed, many a retired industrialist with a princely estate here has joined the local Chamber of Commerce for the express purpose of preventing the development of factories in the city or immediate vicinity. This chapter describes points of interest in Pasadena, including the Civic Center, Pasadena Public Library, All Saints' Episcopal Church, and Grace Nicholson Art Gallery. It also provides visitor information such as bus service, streetcars, taxicabs, information bureaus, traffic regulation, accommodations, and parks and playgrounds.
