This collection includes 200 images selected from MCFL's local history archive. Cataloging and digitization was funded in 2010 through the Local History Digital Resources Project, a Library Services and Technology Act grant. The images are also available in Calisphere and the Digital Public Library of America.
The Local History Photograph Collection includes more than 1,700 photographs and postcards from our historical archive. Many images were by local photographer, L.S. Slevin. The collection documents people, places, and events throughout Monterey County from the 1820s to the 1960s, with most dating from before 1930.
This is a test collection for video content. It currently includes one ten-minute video created by the first Monterey County Librarian, Anne Hadden, and her brother David Hadden documenting a horseback trip to the Big Sur coast in 1922.
Digital collections provide access to images and documents from Monterey County Free Libraries local history collection documenting the history and life of Monterey County. Additional images and documents as well as audio and video will be added from Library collections and partner organizations.
