    Abstract: The Eugene Swarzwald Pictorial California and the Pacific Collection consists of 9,674 black and white photographs, negatives, a photograph album, magazine mock-ups, letters, and ephemera acquired between 1925 and 1968 by Eugene Swarzwald and the Swarzwald family for considered use in the magazine Pictorial California and the Pacific. Images depict California and the West with some coverage of the rest of the United States and international destinations. The collection contains photographs depicting general city views of communities in California, scenic views of wilderness areas, images of parks, schools and universities, museums, and points of historic interest (including California mining towns and missions). The collection is strong in subjects related to leisure and social and recreational activities, with particular emphasis on hotels, golf courses and country clubs, amusement parks, zoos, and beaches. Many of the photographs are by the Keystone Photo Service, a company founded by Eugene Swarzwald in Los Angeles in 1919. Other photographers in the collection are Chuck Abbott, Adelbert Bartlett, Lionel T. Berryhill, Lil and Al Bloom, Hal Boucher, Campbell-Ricco-Mazzuchi Photography, Caroll Photo Service, Garth Chandler, Walter J. Collinge, Fairchild Aerial Surveys, George O. Fales, Frasher's, J.P.

    Historical Note

    The Pacific Press Syndicate, Inc. began publication of Pictorial California in December of 1925. The title was soon changed to Pictorial California and the Pacific by Eugene Swarzwald, president of the Pacific Press Syndicate and Keystone Photo Service which supplied many of the magazine's images. Swarzwald's magazine promoted the virtues of California and the western United States, and was distributed by chambers of commerce, railroad and steamship companies, and hotel management. The magazine is entirely graphic, consisting of photographs with captions but very little narrative accompaniment. The Swarzwald family produced the magazine until 1968 when it was taken over by a new publisher.
    [For more information on the history of the Keystone Photo Service and Pictorial California and the Pacific see: Los Angeles Times, January 6, 1924 and November 9, 1925; and Pictorial California and the Pacific, v. 43, no. 3, Summer Number, 1968.]

    Scope and Contents

    The Eugene Swarzwald Pictorial California and the Pacific Collection consists of 9,674 black and white photographs, negatives, a photograph album, magazine mock-ups, letters, and ephemera, 1909-ca. 1968, collected by Eugene Swarzwald and the Swarzwald family for considered use in the magazine Pictorial California and the Pacific. Images depict California and the West with some coverage of the rest of the United States and international destinations. The collection contains photographs depicting general city views of communities in California, scenic views of wilderness areas, images of parks, schools and universities, museums, and points of historic interest (including California mining towns and missions). The collection is strong in subjects related to leisure and social and recreational activities, with particular emphasis on hotels, golf courses and country clubs, amusement parks, zoos, and beaches.
    A large part of the collection is made up of images depicting communities in Los Angeles County including the City of Los Angeles; Bel Air (including views of the Bel Air Country Club, and many homes and gardens); Hollywood (including an event at the Hollywood Bowl for Chinese relief efforts after World War II attended by Madame Chiang Kai-Shek, Grauman's Chinese Theater, and Barnsdall Park and Hollyhock House); Lincoln Heights (including the Alligator and Ostrich Farms); Pacific Palisades; San Fernando Valley; Alhambra and Arcadia (including images of Gay's Lion Farm and Santa Anita Park); Beverly Hills (including Pickfair, the home of Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks); Claremont (including images of the Padua Hills Theater); Glendale (including images of Forest Lawn Memorial Park and the Grand Central Air Terminal); Inglewood (including the Forum and Hollywood Park); La Canada-Flintridge (including Descanso Gardens and the Flintridge Hotel); Long Beach (including aerial views of the city, beaches, and damage from the earthquake of 1933); Pasadena (including the Arroyo Seco, Colorado Street Bridge, the Rose Bowl, and Rose Parades), Catalina Island and Avalon; the San Gabriel Mountains (including Mount Wilson Observatory, the Mount Lowe Trolley and Tavern, Switzer's Camp, and Big Pines Recreation Area); and Santa Monica (including depictions of beach scenes and activities; beach clubs such as the Bel Air Bay Club, Breakers, Casa del Mar, Deauville, Edgewater, Gables, the Jonathan Club, Beverly and the Santa Monica Tennis Club; the Palisades and Palisades Park; and the Pacific Coast Highway).
    The collection contains views of other California counties and sites, including views of Orange County; Alameda County; Inyo County and Death Valley; Monterey County and the Monterey Peninsula; Riverside County (especially Palm Springs and the Sherman Institute in Riverside); Santa Barbara County; San Bernardino County; San Diego County; the City and County of San Francisco; the Channel Islands; Lake Tahoe; the Redwood Highway; the California State Water Project; California state parks; Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park; and Yosemite National Park. There are also a large number of images of California's redwood and sequoia forests in Del Norte and Humboldt Counties.
