When I Think of Home: Images from L.A. ArchivesMain MenuIntroductionThe greater Los Angeles area is on the traditional lands of the Gabrielino/Tongva, Chumash, Fernandeño Tataviam and Yuhaaviatam/Maarenga’yam (Serrano) peoples. We acknowledge their presence here since time immemorial and recognize their continuing connection to the land, to the water and to their ancestors.L.A.

For Los Angeles and the surrounding area, the collections include nearly 23,000 photographs from the Title Insurance and Trust Company (TICOR) and the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce (LAACC), housed and managed for CHS by the Regional History Center at the University of Southern California and viewable through the USC Digital Library (digitallibrary.usc.edu). Documenting development of the Los Angeles region from 1860 to 1960, the TICOR collection includes the work of many prominent local photographers, including C. C. Pierce. The LAACC collection includes promotional images in addition to those that depict the growth of the city and its transportation systems.
Southern California is well represented throughout CHS’s photography holdings. Notable collections include Anton Wagner’s Depression-era photographs of Los Angeles, 1932–33; Adolph Petsch’s early views of Pasadena and greater Southern California; Los Angeles Fire Department photographs, 1912–15; and Nina Page’s 1905 panoramas of Bonnie Brae Street, Rosedale Cemetery, Santa Monica, Terminal Island, and the Pasadena ostrich farm.
The California Historical Society can be searched in three ways. The Online Catalog contains basic descriptive records for manuscripts and photographic collections; books and pamphlets; periodicals, posters, broadsides, maps, and newspapers; and other materials. The Digital Library contains digitized primary sources such as photographs, maps, and ephemera. And the Online Archive of California contains detailed guides to manuscript and photography collections, digital images, and digitized oral histories.structured_gallery2020-10-09T13:33:09-07:00Curtis Fletcher3225f3b99ebb95ebd811595627293f68f680673e
