About this Collection

The Taber Family Photographs collection contains 45 photographic prints taken mostly by Isaiah W. Taber circa 1880-1895. The bulk of the collection features individual and group portraits of Taber, his wife, and his two daughters, Daisy and Louise --including a "bas-relief" portrait of the photographer. Other photographs include views of Taber's Oakland residence, interior views of Taber's photographic parlors, a portrait of Sumner Bugbee and his wife posing before their Oakland residence, portraits of unidentified persons, and a Chinese vegetable peddler in San Francisco. Also included are photographic reproductions of C.A.M. Taber's 1848 sketches of Sacramento and San Francisco, and a photographic reproduction of a print of the Taber Family coat of arms. Non-photographic material includes a newsprint clipping advertising San Francisco's Taber Gallery, and three porcelain dishes illustrated with views derived from photographs of Yosemite Valley.
