WHO IS ROSE?
MEET LOUIS ROSE AND THE REST OF ROSE'S TEAM.

Louis Rose, ca. 1870. Although known as an
amiable, outgoing man, Louis Rose scowled during
this portrait session because the time exposure of
the photograph was long. The result: a genial man
looked quite severe

It is reported that the Jewish population of San Diego mixed easily in social circles, there being so few people of European descent, but Mexicans and Indians often met hostile treatment. San Diego was
not without its pleasures, however. 

When Louis Rose reopened the Commercial House hotel in 1854 advertisements declared,
​                 “the bar contains the choicest of wines, the best of liquors, and the finest cigars”
