Title:Charles B. Turrill photographs of San Francisco, Yosemite Valley and other scenic California locations
Creator/Contributor:Turrill, Charles B. (Charles Beebe), 1854-1927, creator
Commercial views of San Francisco, Yosemite Valley, various counties, and numerous other natural and urban landmarks throughout
the state of California. Scenic beauty and agriculture are emphasized, as are significant urban buildings and hotels. Caption
text emphasizes the tourist appeal of the subjects, and suggest images were produced for publication in a promotional book
or magazine. One reference to the "exposition city" of San Francisco implies the publication coincided with the 1915 Panama
Pacific International Exposition. San Francisco and Yosemite are represented by numerous photographs. Other locales tend to
have one representative image.
