This collection contains the negatives of Charles W. McLaughlin's photographic work documenting the Inland Empire of Southern
California (San Bernardino and Riverside counties). The photographs span more than a sixty year period showing the region's
development from a rural/agricultural area to a more urban one. Most of the subject matter is landscapes, architecture, and
people within the San Bernardino mountains, but areas and landmarks outside of the Inland Empire are included as well. The
collection covers material from about 1850 to 1984.
