The Photographic Views of the Mojave Route, El Dorado Canyon and Fort Mojave collection contains 41 photographic prints taken
by Rudolph D'Heureuse in 1863. Pictured in the collection is the Mojave Desert region from the San Bernardino Valley and Cajon
Pass eastward to the Colorado River and Fort Mojave of Arizona. The reason D'Heureuse photographed this section of the "Mojave
Road" and the adjacent region is unclear. It is most likely that he was surveying the area in association with either the
Macedonia Mining District or the California State Geological Survey. D'Heureuse's work is considered to be the earliest extant
body of survey photographs of this region.
