This collection consists of 49 photographic prints of views of the
borax industry in California and New Jersey, ca. 1898-ca. 1915. The photographers are unknown. The photographs were probably produced
or commissioned by the Pacific Coast
Borax Company. The cover and printed captions which are included with the photographs were apparently part of an album which was
disbound. Included are images of activities and facilities of the Pacific Coast
Borax Co., various "20 Mule Team
Borax" products, the Bayonne refinery (interiors and exteriors) in New Jersey, lab procedures, equipment, and women working in
the packing room. Also included are views of the company's mine in Death Valley, California,
borax miners, and 20 mule teams transporting the
borax products. Typewritten captions are pasted below the photographs and are reprinted in the container listing.
