Scope and Content of Collection

Views of Southern California communities particularly the San Gabriel and San Bernardino Valleys, Catalina, and coastal cities. Photographer's first name not known; last name is dubious. ("H.D. Gibbins Photos" appears on several of the photographs, but it is not known whether the photographer himself identified them or if another person did so. Captions in the same penmanship appear on all of the photographs, many of them misspelled.) The original images consisted of glass negatives; prints were subsequently produced from most of the negatives by the museum's History Division.
