Scope and Content

The Gomez de la Cortina collection consists of 32 stereographs collected by the Gomez de la Cortina family, apparently on a tour of the United States. The stereographs date from 1870-1906. The stereographs are photographic prints, except number 24, which is a tissue stereograph. The collection contains work by various photographers: Underwood & Underwood, George W. Griffith, American Stereoscopic Co., Pan American Publishing Co., Keystone View Company, J. J. Reilly, I. W. Taber, Carleton E. Watkins, Strohmeyer & Wyman, E. & H. T. Anthony & Co., B. W. Kilburn, and Eadweard Muybridge. Includes images of President McKinley visiting California, and views of San Francisco, Los Angeles, Yosemite, Berkeley, San Jose, Oakland, and Alaska.
Some items have photographer's numbers, photographer's series, date published, name of publisher, or place published. The versos of the stereographs have manuscript notes in Spanish. A few stereographs have extensive printed captions in English on their versos. Printed captions which appear below the photographs are reprinted in the container listing. Handwritten captions are indicated with parentheses surrounding the text. Bracketed information was supplied for the container list.
