The Arnold Del Carlo Photograph Collection consists of photographs and negatives, which document the transformation of Santa Clara Valley from orchards to an urban landscape. The years covered by the collection range from the late 1940s to the early 1970s, and include photographs taken from the street level as well as from the air. Prominent groups of photographs include those taken of institutions such as San Jose State College, the City of San Jose, the International Business Machines Corporation (IBM), and General Motors Company (GMC); of land developers and builders, and business establishments in the cities of San Jose and Santa Clara; and portraits of individuals and families, as well as weddings and anniversaries.
