Inscription.  Named for Dr. J. Carvasso Fraser, Physician for the Raymond Hotel in the 1890s.

In 1900, Dr. Fraser served as President of the First National Bank of Pasadena. The original Victorian Bank Building, located at the Northeast corner of Colorado Boulevard and Fair Oaks Avenue, was destroyed by fire in 1929.
