The Barry Collection contains 76 photographs spanning circa 1860 to circa 1910. The subject matter is primarily early street
transportation in Los Angeles, including horse-drawn, cable, and electric cars and a trackless trolley in Laurel Canyon. Also
included is a photograph of a two-level trolley in San Diego. Other subjects include Los Angeles street scenes and buildings;
an auto race at Ascot Park; views of Mt. Lowe, Mt. Wilson, San Pedro Harbor, La Jolla caves, the Hotel Del Coronado, Mission
Santa Barbara, Redlands, Riverside, Long Beach, Avalon Bay, Catalina Island, and Tijuana, Mexico. The collection also contains
two photographs of paintings or lithographs. Though the photographers are not indicated, many of the prints bear the stamp
or inscription of photographic studios, including Frank L. Park, C.C. Pierce, Park & Company, and Slocum. The prints originally
made up an album which was obtained by Barry from an unidentified friend.
