I’m always on the lookout for photographs by Charles Chester Pierce, whose C.C. Pierce and Co. was one of the most active studios in Los Angeles. The images are always sharp and finely detailed. Most of them show Los Angeles, but here’s a book of images that has been listed on EBay, showing San Francisco after the 1906 earthquake. Bidding on this book starts at $9.99.
Many of Pierce’s photographs are at the Huntington (51 linear feet!).
