Research Library & Archives – Photo Archives

This is the major strength of the Archives. There are an estimated one million images (many in negative format only) of Pasadena and surrounding areas. Individual items are catalogued by subject; photo albums are shelved and described separately. Important early Pasadena photographers, active during the 1880s and 1890s, are particularly well represented. In addition to photograph albums, stereographs, and postcards, the collection contains:
