Resources – Photo Collection

The Moraga History Center archives physical documents such as newspaper clippings, studies and other material organized by subject in what we call the Veritical Files which are available for visitors to pull and review. Our Photo Files which contain physical photo prints are in a separate location and can only be accessed by MHS staff. A photocopy of the print has been placed in the corresponding Vertical File subject folder. If a visitor reviewing a Vertical File folder wishes to see the original print he or she must ask the staff member on duty. There are 1,000+ prints in the Photo Files. We have already scanned our slides which are available online in the Slide Collection organized according to time periods. The Photo Catalog below represents the Photo File subject folders and the approximate number of prints they contain. We have begun scanning our photo prints and are making thumbnail versions available through the dedicated photo subject web page to which this Catalog will link once a “subject” has been scanned. We are saving the scanned prints as tif and jpg files. We will eventually be able to make high resolution jpg files available by request. Where the photographer’s identity is evident on the physical print we include the name or organization as the “author”. In most cases we do not know what copyright restrictions may exist and provide the images on a “fair use” basis. Please refer to our Disclaimer to determine how you may make use of the content on our web site.
