Description
The Angel Island State Park Photographic Collection contains 1,636 cataloged images that date from 1775 through 2010. Images depict the property as a military installation, a quarantine station, an immigration station, and finally, a state park.
Background
The largest natural island in the San Francisco Bay, Angel Island contains over one square mile of abundant natural and historical resources. Angel Island State Park encompasses the entirety of the island’s 740 acres except for 3 coastal points—Point Stuart, Point Knox, and Point Blunt—that are owned and operated by the U. S. Coast Guard. Nestled between Marin and San Francisco Counties, the park is located approximately 6 miles north of the city of San Francisco and 1.5 miles south and east of the Tiburon Peninsula. The island is accessible by private boat or public ferry from the cities of San Francisco, Tiburon, and Vallejo.
