Description
Many of the photographs are marked up; they appear to have been used for publication by the Los Angeles Herald [newspaper]. 1846 - 1905, undated
Background
The organization was formed in 1883 to collect and preserve manuscripts, periodicals, newspapers, and both written and oral historical accounts regarding the history of the Pacific Coast in general and of Southern California in particular. Another purpose of the organization, as reflected in this collection, was to maintain a photographic record of the changing views of the city and surrounding landscapes and persons prominently associated with the regional history.
