About This Item

California, 1900. Hardcover. Near Fine. Oblong quarto measuring 12" x 10". String-tied black cloth over stiff paper boards with "Kodak" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 141 sepia-toned or black and white Kodak prints measuring between 2" x 2" and 4" x 5" with captions. Near fine album with near fine photographs.

A photo album of Kodak photographs taken during a trip to California and Colorado in the early 1900s. All the photos are housed in a Kodak specific album with space to caption the "subject" underneath each image. It is clear from the clarity and staging of the photos that the photographer had an interest in the art. The album opens with photos from Catalina Island including ships off the shore, golfing, and a stage coach on Mountain Drive. They toured Southern California visiting Pasadena, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, and other places before heading north to San Francisco and San Rafael. Here they explored the coast and countryside photographing the Santa Barbara Mission, the Ojai Valley, and the Monterey Coast, among other highlights. They visited Stanford University, the Lick Observatory, and various hotels including the Hotel Del Monte. During the next leg of their trip they toured Yosemite photographing Bridal Veil Falls, Glacier Point, and El Capitan. One of the photos is captions, "rainbow on Bridal Veil Falls;" another reads "J on gallant steed" and shows a woman posed with a horse. The final pages show images of Colorado Springs and Salt Lake City, Utah including a photo captioned "Chinatown" and another of Pike's Peak.

A wonderful collection of turn of the century Kodak photography.
