Series Description

F3254:1-307, Box 1/1 - Box 7/36

Series 1 Historical Record Photographs circa 1917-1950

Physical Description: 3,585 items

Arrangement

Arranged alphabetically by name of state agency.

Scope and Content Note

Photographs document state-owned buildings, equipment, structures and activities of state personnel from various agencies. The largest portion of the collection includes images of such facilities as San Quentin and Folsom State Prisons, state parks, Exposition Park (Los Angeles), State Fairgrounds (Sacramento), Exposition Building (San Diego), state hospitals, state colleges, the University of California, special schools, armories, State Capitol and Capitol Park, and the Governor's Mansion. Of special interest is a large group of images documenting the San Francisco Harbor (circa 1917-1930) including the Ferry Building, State Belt Railroad, state dredgers and tugboats, piers, warehouses, wood ships, and activities on the waterfront (F3254:59). Approximately half the images are in albums which include detailed information about the construction of the buildings shown (dates, dimensions, materials, additions, etc.).
A smaller portion of the collection - labeled "action" photographs - is comprised of photos illustrating state agency activities which were collected by the Dept. of Finance for use in legislative budget hearings in 1938. This group includes the Dept. of Agriculture's Grain Lab field work and inspection activities; cadets in training at the California Maritime Academy; students and teachers at state colleges; anti-aircraft, tank and artillery training of the California National Guard; registering vehicles at the Dept. of Motor Vehicles; the drafting room at the Div. of Architecture; and, many other state agency activities.
Formats included are photograph albums, photographic prints, negatives, aerial photographs, and oversized photographic prints.
