Northeastern California Historical Photographs
The rich visual heritage of northeastern California is documented in over 18,000 historical photographs, many dating from the nineteenth century and representing a wide variety of early photographic processes. This extensive collection is a result of gifts and loans from individuals, historical organizations, as well as public and private agencies. All of the images are indexed in the llibrary catalog so that patrons may access photographs by geographic location, subject, personal names, or photographer of origin. Reproductions are available for a fee.
