Book Description 
Beautifully designed and produced, this pictorial record of Northern California and the Pacific coast following the gold rush will be indispensable to collectors of western Americana, admirers of photography, and anyone interested in early California history. These 200 photographs were selected from over 1500 images by the authors, who are preeminent photo historians.  
Additional description 
California after 1849 played host to the growth of a new and exciting landscape and culture, and to important developments in the world's newest visual medium: photography. Among the most significant practitioners of this new art was the San Francisco firm of Lawrence & Houseworth, established in 1852. For some forty years the firm was the premier source in the West for landscapes, portraits, and stereographs.  
With over 200 illustrations, this book offers a fascinating look at what is "without a doubt the finest single pictorial record of the maturation of Northern California and the Pacific Coast following the rambunctious days of the Gold Rush and statehood." -Gary Kurutz, California State Library.
