[Southern California snapshot photograph albums]


Two snapshot photograph albums documenting leisure activities in Southern California, chiefly in and around the greater Los Angeles area, taken in the mid-1920s. Albums share some common subject matter and, in a few instances, identical images. Volume 1: identified locations and subjects include Arcadia; oil wells; the Earl Daugherty airfield in Long Beach; unidentified mountains; Alamo River; San Diego; Gay's Lion Farm (including photographs of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Gay) in El Monte; Los Angeles Ostrich Farm near Lincoln Park; the Japanese pagoda of the Bernheimer Gardens in Pacific Palisades; Redondo Beach; Santa Monica palisades; and postcards of Lake Arrowhead and the 1926 Tournament of Roses parade floats. Volume 2: locations and subjects include residential houses in Long Beach and Pasadena; views of Orange Grove and Santa Ana; scenes of the 1926 Tournament of Roses parade; Palm Springs; desert scenes near Imperial Valley; Balboa Park, San Diego; Santa Monica palisades; and the Rainbow Trout Club in Redlands. Other than the name Enid, individuals depicted are not identified. A few loose photographs depicting the Imperial Valley desert, and a copy of a clipping of Gay's Lion Farm, are shelved in a separate folder.
