The small prickles are suspiciously Rugosa-like.

Rugosa Hybrids, etc. 

Besides the Roses before described, a climbing pink Rose is attracting attention. It received a medal from the California State Floral Society. Also some extra fine large double Rugosa Hybrids from Rugosa X Gen. Jacqueminot, Rugosa X La France, Rugosa X Paul Neyron, Rugosa X Banksia, Rugosa X Sinica and other crosses. These, though lacking in the lasting qualities of  most roses, are, in brilliancy of color, unexcelled.

Years ago I saw an ample (several hundred) progeny from rugosa x laevigata and was said it is an easy cross. Alas the whole lot combined the poorest features from each species resulting in large ugly plants with ugly flowers plus complete sterility.
