Extent: 6543 EA (74 photograph albums containing 6528 photographic prints and 4 documents; 11 copy negatives)

Scope and Content Note

Series 1 is comprised of 74 photograph albums compiled by Carl Christensen, primarily of West Coast shipping circa 1890-1950. The photographs in the albums appear to have no arrangement. A wide variety of sail and steam vessels shown underway, anchored, docked, loading, and wrecked appear in each album.
A majority of the photograph's locations are unidentified, but most were likely taken in various locations along the Pacific Coasts of North America, along with some inland photographs. Some locations have been identified as Alaska; California (Catalina Island, Albion, Arcata, Crescent City, Eureka, Fairhaven, Fields Landing, Humboldt Bay, Mattole Landing, Mendocino Coast, Monterey, Noyo, Point Arguello, Point Arena, Sacramento River Delta, Samoa, San Francisco Bay Area, San Diego, San Pablo, San Pedro, and more); Canada; Hawaii; Oregon (Astoria, Bandon, Columbia River, Coos Bay, Coquille, Marshfield, North Bend, Port Orford, Rogue River, and more); and Washington (Aberdeen, Columbia River, Grays Harbor, Hoquiam, Port Townsend, Puget Sound, Seattle, and more). San Francisco Bay Area photographs include San Francisco, Oakland, and Alameda, among others. Humboldt Bay shipyards include H.D. Bendixsen and Rolph Shipbuilding. San Francisco Bay Area shipyards include Barnes & Tibbitts, Charles G. White, and Moore Shipbuilding Company. There are a limited number of East Coast photographs, including Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York, as well as locations outside the United States, including Hong Kong, Cuba, and Gibralter.
Inlcudes a small number of portraits of people such as Carl Christensen, Captain John Hubenette, Harold Huycke, Gordon Jones, Karl Kortum, Captain P.A. McDonald, Captain A.F. Raynaud, Captain Charles Rohnberg, and Allen Villiers.
