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).
