The Stanislaus Region History and Culture Image Collection consists of two sets of photographic images and one commemorative
scrapbook that depict in various ways the multifaceted history, geography, and culture of one specific region of the northern
San Joaquin Valley. The images describe two differing but related perspectives on the Stanislaus County region of the Central
Valley of California: 1. the early history of the village of Turlock (founded in 1871), illustrated by a collection of early
photographs dating from the late 19th century through the 1930s; and 2. a more recent collection of photographs created by
Modesto-based photojournalist and commercial photographer Manual Dias (1918-2005).
