Some Views Around Vallejo and Mare Island contains 126 photographic prints of the Vallejo and Mare Island vicinity taken circa
1865 to circa 1910. Included are many early townscapes of Vallejo as well as views of many of its institutions and commercial
areas, such as the Good Templar's Home for Orphans, the Frisbie House, Plummer & Robinson, Star Mills, The Methodist Episcopal
Church, the Church of the Ascension, Georgia Street, Santa Clara Street, Virginia Street, school buildings, the local rectory,
and some private residences, including that of A. Powell. Also featured prominently in the collection is the Mare Island Navy
Yard. Included are several photographs of ships and dry dock activity, street scenes, buildings, beaches, a U.S. Navy graveyard,
