    Scope and Contents

    Approximately 60 prints collected by Brandt depicting transportation and other subjects in California, especially railroads and street cars. Brandt contributed many images to books and magazines on the history of railroards and the San Francisco Bay Area, and the Western Neighborhoods Project's OpenSFHistory.org contains a large Emiliano Echeverria/Randolph Brandt Collection (http://opensfhistory.org/Photoset/Echeverria-Brandt_Collection). He also donated some material to Stanford's Hopkins Transportation Library, which this collection was probably part of at one time (some are stamped as such on the back). Other prints have Brandt's personal stamp "Photo from Rudolph Brandt, San Francisco" while others have handwritten "R.C. Brandt 4/10/41." The majority are good quality copy prints, with some perhaps as old as 1941, while others may be original.
