Gabriel Moulin [Charles Peter Gabriel Moulin] (1872-1945) was a leading California photographer whose subjects included 1906
San Francisco earthquake scenes, Bohemian Grove plays, and the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge. He was born in San
Jose, but his family relocated to San Francisco when he was eight years old. In 1884 he began assisting Isaiah West Taber
with Taber's commercial photography. After working for photographer Max Karras for a year in 1891, he was soon employed by
R.J. Waters, who had a large photography studio in San Francisco. Under Waters, Moulin worked as a photographer for the 1894
California Midwinter International Exposition in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. He later became the official photographer
for the Bohemian Club.
