Aerial photographs of Baja California (Mexico) coastal features, including black-and-white images of points, ports, capes,
bays, and islands, taken by Leland Lewis, a west coast navigator, sailor and author. Port towns represented include Ensenada,
La Paz, Loreto, Mulege, Santa Rosalia, and San Felipe. Many of the images were used to illustrate Lewis's book entitled SEA
GUIDE - BAJA (1971). Although most of the photographs were taken by Lewis from a small plane between 1965 and 1971, some
were collected from earlier governmental and commercial sources. The photographs are arranged alphabetically by location.
Leland Lewis was a navigator who worked aboard west coast tuna clippers and sailed as the skipper of his own schooner. In
1965, he published the first volume of his SEA GUIDE, which covered the Southern California coast from Point Arguello to Punta
Banda, Mexico. The second volume, covering both the Pacific and Gulf of California coasts of Baja California, appeared in
1971. Most of the photographs were taken in the company of Arnold Senterfitt, a pilot and author of AIRPORTS OF BAJA CALIFORNIA.
