Scope and Content

The Scenic Views in California and the Columbia River Gorge album contains 106 mounted photographic albumen prints taken circa 1880 to circa 1890. The views featured in the album are almost entirely of California locations. Points of interest pictured include Lake Tahoe, the Lick Observatory and Mount Hamilton, the Hotel Del Monte and Monterey, San Lorenzo Canyon, Ortega, Gaviota and the Gaviota Pass, Santa Barbara, San Clemente, San Fernando, San Diego, Montecito, San Luis Obispo, Glen Annie, the San Marcos Pass, the Yosemite Valley, Mt. Shasta and the Mossbrae Falls, Sausalito, and Mount Tamalpais. The album also includes several photographs of San Francisco, picturing such areas as Ocean Beach, the Cliff House, the Palace Hotel, Fort Mason, Nob Hill, California Street, Chinatown, panoramic city views, and scenes of Alcatraz Island and San Francisco Bay. Many of the Franciscan Missions are also featured, including San Juan Capistrano, San Luis Rey, San Carlos Borromeo, La Purísima Concepción, San Fernando, Santa Barbara, and San Diego.
Also included in the album is one photograph (No. 67) of the Columbia River.
Only one print (No. 5) is labeled with a photographer's name, that being R.J. Waters. One print (No. 28) bears the initials C.J. or J.C. Most of the prints in the album are captioned and/or numbered in a consistent manner, suggesting that one or a few photographers at most are responsible for the photographs.
The front cover of the album bears the title "California." The item numbers of the following container listing correspond to the page numbers supplied in the album.
