    Scope and Content

    Photographs show many scenes in and around Yosemite Valley; some views of San Francisco (including Watkins' 9-plate stereograph-sized panorama, ca. 1867, and a view of the wreck of the ship Viscata, 1868) ; views along the Columbia River; a panorama of Portland (Oregon); and a few views of Idaho, Sitka (Alaska), and Lima (Peru).

    Note

    Most photographs taken by Eadweard Muybridge. Also includes many half stereographs taken by Carleton E. Watkins, particularly from his 1867 trip to Oregon and the Columbia River Gorge. Some by other photographers may be present.
    Many views are from half-stereograph negatives, some of which have more image area printed than do copies on stereograph cards. When the stereographs could be located in Bancroft Library collections, the Watkins stereo number was noted, and caption information was provided from the stereograph mounts.
