    Project Information

    The Sesquicentennial Photograph Collection consists of digital copies of photographs contributed by residents of the Tulare County communities of Dinuba, Exeter, Visalia, Porterville and Tulare. Photo collection days were held at libraries in each of these locations, on five separate Saturdays in 2002. Volunteers recorded information provided by the contributors about each of their photographs. These historical photos provide a rare look at the history of Tulare County and its early residents. The Sesquicentennial Collection was created through funding provided by the Tulare County Library, the Tulare County Office of Education and the Tulare County Library Foundation.
