homes and buildings; California missions; the Fiesta de los Flores of 1901; Mount Lowe attractions; and Catalina Island. Number

This collection of mounted photographs comprises one portion of the Historical Society of Southern California (HSSC) Collection,
which was donated to the Huntington Library in 1992. The HSSC Collection as a whole contains approximately 15,000 photographs
and negatives covering the period circa 1870 to circa 1980, and almost exclusively depicts Southern California. As such,
it is an important visual record of the growth and history of the region.
