Portraits of local families, images of the region's geographic landscapes, and artwork are also contained in this collection
Avery Edwin Field was the premier commercial photographer in Riverside for most of the first half of the twentieth century. The name "Avery Field" was synonymous with photographic artistry and high technical quality for three generations of Riverside residents. As the official photographer of the Mission Inn and a successful entrant in many prestigious salon exhibits, Field also enjoyed a national and international reputation for photographic excellence.
