Table of contents What's This?
The California History Center collection includes images of historical interest of Santa Clara County with emphasis on the western Santa Clara Valley, especially the municipalities of Cupertino, Saratoga and Los Gatos, and San José. Nineteenth and early to mid-twentieth century agricultural, and transportation history, education and urban life are portrayed in visual images from the general photo collection, the Charles Fuller family scrapbook collection, the Charlie Baer photo collection, a postcard file and ephemeral items. Cupertino farming families such as the Merithew and Dunbar families, Charlie Baer's automobiles and business activities, local churches, and Cupertino and north county schools are featured along with landscape images from parks and creeks of Santa Clara Valley. Charles Fuller's March 1914 bicycle trip from Sunnyvale to Mt. Hamilton and Lick Observatory is recorded through captioned photographs.
