Abstract:

Views of California mainly show San Francisco (Cliff House, Chinatown, Sutro Baths, etc.) but also include Sacramento, Catalina Island, Mt. Lowe, the Hotel del Coronado, Sacramento, and missions. Many of the views of Alaska relate to Indians: portraits (some in costume), artifacts, a home interior, totems, etc. Other Alaskan views show cabins, wagon teams, a store in Sitka, an early view of Dawson, Juneau from the water, etc. One view shows Siwash Indians fishing on the Fraser River in Canada.
