Abstract:

Photographic prints and other prints show San Francisco scenes (especially architectural views of large Victorian homes and some public buildings), several of art works and artists' models, snapshots of the aftermath of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire, and several colored views of the Panama-Pacific International Exposition. Collected material of note is a set of "real photo postcards" by M.A. Lowry, circa 1905-1910, comprising views and gatherings along the Russian River particularly in the Monte Rio vicinity, a group of four promotional prints from the North Shore Railroad Company promoting "Country Home Resorts" along the Russian River, a set of Golden Gate Park and coastal San Francisco views by Gabriel Moulin, and a photograph of a bas relief profile portrait of poet George Sterling, inscribed by him to Austin Lewis (all --PIC box 1). A set of damaged and faded (proof?) prints of Mexican mines is included. There is also a set of 12 chromolithographs of Yosemite, printed with verse and issued by the San Francisco office of the Pennsylvania Fire Insurance Co. of Philadelphia (--AX folder 1). A small album in the Japanese accordion-fold style, contains late 19th century photographs of scenes presumably in Japan: chiefly architectural views of what appear to be temples (--ALB). Some unidentified family portraits (cabinet cards) and snapshots are present. Among the portraits is a cabinet card photograph of British Labour Party founder Keir Hardie, circa 1890s, inscribed by him, with a back stamp of the American Section of the Socialist Labor Party (--PIC box 1). Unprinted negatives: primarily family photos and rural scenes (most probably taken in California).

Title devised by cataloger.
Photographed largely by Oliver Everett. Some postcards by M.A. Lowry.

Formerly erroneously cataloged as the Henry D. Cogswell family photograph collection.

GLASS NEGATIVES (boxes 1-11) and rolled items (TEMP shelves) UNPROCESSED. UNAVAILABLE FOR USE. Inquiries regarding these materials should be submitted to The Bancroft Library via the Notice of Interest in Unprocessed Collections form.
NITRATE NEGATIVES (boxes 12-13) CLOSED TO RESEARCH DUE TO HAZARDOUS MATERIALS RESTRICTIONS.
COLLECTION STORED, IN PART, OFF-SITE: Advance notice required for use.
Gift of Richard Taber, grandson of Oliver Everett.
Photographs related to Henry Cogswell received with these materials (and collected by Loren Taber, son-in-law of Oliver Everett) have been added to the Photographs from the Henry D. Cogswell papers (BANC PIC 1984.025).
Some oversize material has been cataloged separately as BANC PIC 1988.037--B.
Oliver Everett, 1860-1945, was a San Francisco photographer, architect, and socialist politician.
Transferred from the Oliver Everett papers, and additions to the papers (BANC MSS 85/91.) Additions to these papers, and to the Henry Cogswell papers, came as one gift, via the Taber family, therefore it is possible some Cogswell material is present within the Everett collection.
