1Creator/Collector:  Getty, J. Paul (Jean Paul), 1892-1976
Requires cookie*
 Title:  Collected photographs and postcards of Los Angeles, California and vicinity  
 Dates:  circa 1857-1940 
 Abstract:  This collection primarily comprises black-and-white photographs of early California (1857-1940s). J. Paul Getty collected these images; they reflect his interest in Los Angeles and the coastal region of Santa Monica and Malibu, where he spent much of his life. The bulk of the images trace the development of Los Angeles from a small pueblo to a bustling city and show the Santa Monica coastline, canyons, and mountains prior to their development. The collection also contains several photographs of waterfront communities to the north and south of Los Angeles, a few shots of California missions, and one of the Redwoods. It also includes a small set of non-photographic postcards of California (1885).
