Do you love looking at pictures? You've come to the right place! Our massive pictorial collection contains everything from daguerreotypes to color photos. We have postcards, letter-sheets, lithographs, stereographs and paintings as well as collections of work by famous California photographers like Carleton Watkins, William Fletcher and others. Our collection is so big, that much of it is still not online. However, you can see a portion of it on Calisphere and in our catalog. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
