Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Berkeley and Oakland Businesses and Scenes collection contains 52 photographs and 3 post cards dating from around the turn of the century to the 1930s. The collection contains a miscellany of residences, businesses, street scenes, group portraits, and churches. A large portion of the collection apparently documents the iron ornamentation of many of the featured buildings--perhaps the work of Liberty Ornamental Iron and Wire Works, Inc., which is pictured in at least one photograph. Notable buildings and locations include the Berkeley City Hall, the University of California at Berkeley, the Lutheran Church on Bancroft Way in Berkeley, Shattuck Avenue, Alta Bates Hospital, the residence of C.L. Best, a large Masonic building, and the RKO Golden Gate Theatre. Much specific information relating to many of the photographs--such as location, subject matter, date, or photographer--remains unidentified.
52 photographic prints, 21 x 26 cm. or smaller; 3 post cards, 9 x 14 cm. or smaller. 54 digital objects
