Guide to the Getty Center Site Planning and Construction Photographs, 1947-1997, undated
Series I. Views of Getty Center site and surrounding areas, 1947, 1958, 1963, 1978, 1982, 1984-1997, undated (bulk 1984-1997) 68.76 linear feet (70 boxes and 4 flat files)
Series I.B. Dinwiddie Construction Company (DcCO) images, 1990-1997 26.08 linear feet (29 boxes)
Records comprise photographic prints, slides, and negatives, dating 1990-1997, of the Getty Center construction site provided by Dinwiddie Construction Company (DcCO). These aerial and ground views of the site were likely used to provide the J. Paul Getty Trust with photographic documentation of the construction progress. Select images may be attributed to George Savery while the majority of the aerial shots were taken by Warren Aerial Photography, Inc.
It is unclear whether images contained within "Construction progress negatives" and "Site view slides" are duplicates.
