About this Collection

The Frank B. Rodolph collection consists of 1254 original photographs taken by Rodolph and associates, including Isaiah W. Taber. The Taber photographs, primarily of Alaska, can be found in volume 14 (BANC PIC 1905.17159). Rodolph's subjects include a variety of cityscapes, residences and other buildings chiefly of the San Francisco Bay Area, Sonoma County, Santa Cruz and Monterey areas of California. Many of the photographs are of recreational and leisure activities, including outings of a Bay Area group of photographers (including Rodolph) who called themselves "the Merry Tramps." Numbers in parentheses on the caption lists are photographer's numbers that appear on the photographs. Captions on the container listing were provided by the donor of the collection, Margaret E. Schlichtmann.... View collection guide.
