The Dressler's Pioneer Place album contains 21 black and white photographs dating from the 1920s. One photograph is dated
September, 1929. Dressler's Pioneer Place was a business and apparent historical museum located at 2282 Fulton Street, Berkeley,
California. The Place seems to have been an antique or curio shop, or a venue for humorous historical reenactments. Views
of people in historical costume, sets, Albert Dressler, and the store front are shown. The album also contains "My Thirteen
Demandments," a printed list of humorous business ethics. The album's photographer is unknown.
