mystery location / mystery parade

I happened upon this amazing cabinet card last night on ebay.


LOS ANGELES CA California c1880 Cabinet Photo - Parade View


EBAY

There appears to be an open space on the left, behind all the horses and buggies. Could this possible be Central Park?

The mountains in the background could possibly be a clue. (I'm not very good at matching up mountain ridges) -also note the large stone house behind the flagpole.



Does anyone recognize the uniforms?

because I sure don't.



And lastly, here is the reverse of the card.





As a reminder, and to newcomers: Central Park eventually became Pershing Square.
