Since there are so few antiquarian bookstores north of San Francisco, we at Eureka Books are trying to expand our holdings in materials related to the entire region between Santa Rosa and Eugene. Along with the A.W. Ericson photos we lucked into recently, we also picked up five Charles Miller images taken just over the mountains, near Shasta. These are images of the McCloud Lumber Company, the McCloud River Rail Road, and Mt. Shasta. They date from ca. 1908-1915 and are priced between $150 and $275.
Miller is probably the most important early photographer on that side of the hill, and he’s the subject of a recent book: Mt. Shasta Camera – The Photographs of Charles R. Miller. Click the image for a larger view.
