Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection is comprised of six early-20th-century albums of uncertain provenance containing photographic prints, postcards, and photomechanical reproductions that document the vacation experiences of the creator of each album. Locales depicted are chiefly in Southern California, but also include areas throughout the rest of California and the Western states and, in a few cases, in the Eastern United States. The images document the California landscape and its native flora and fauna as they appeared during the first decades of the 20th century. Subjects depicted include missions, national parks, street scenes, domestic scenes, historic buildings, deserts, beaches, mountains, and lakes.
