Abstract

This collection contains one (1) approx. 10 ½”x13” photo album with photos by Andrew P. Hill. The photo album features what appears to be a varnished or lacquered front and back covers made of a wood that may be redwood. Inside the album are pages of photos from the 1900’s. These photos pertain to the founding of the California State Redwood Park, and include photographs of Boulder Creek, Tent City of Santa Cruz, and two photos of steam boat launches. There are many photos of members of the Sierra Club and California Trade Excursion members, and individuals involved with the preservation of the redwoods which became part of California State Redwood Park (later Big Basin). These may be of interest to researchers fascinated by the history of Redwood trees, Big Basin, or history of Redwood Parks in California.
