Scope and Content

Artistic Homes of California consists of twenty-seven views of exteriors (and a few interiors) of mansions located in California. Most of the mansions are located in San Francisco. A few are located in San Jose and Oakland. The individual photomechanical reproductions were published by Britton & Rey between 1887 and 1890 as supplements to the San Francisco News Letter. They were also issued collectively with the title Artistic Homes of California. The Bancroft Library holds copies of this collection which are more complete than the present collection. This collection includes the residences of R. H. Pease, Charles Holbrook, Charles Crocker, Edward W. Hopkins, J. C. Flood, Robert Sherwood, L. L. Baker, David N. Walter, James Cunningham, James R. Stetson, William T. Coleman, Henry L. Tatum, Leland Stanford, Charles M. Chase, M. H. de Young, C. T. Ryland, Charles Josselyn, Thomas S. Montgomery, C. H. Maddox, R. I. Bowie, James V. Coleman, Wallace Everson, Albert Brown, Eugene Meyer, Mrs. John Conly, Henry T. Scott, and W. M. Fries. All but two of the photographs are labeled with the series name "Artotype" and numbered. The last two photographs in the collection are from the "New Artotype" series and are dated 1890. The captions in the container listing are exact transcriptions of the information printed on each photograph.
