      The Booth Historical Photograph Archives of the San Diego Historical Society contains over two million images. These images show San Diego County from the mountains and desert to downtown and the beaches. Dating back to the 1860s, the collection tracks the expansion of the West, the development of the San Diego area, the contributions of various ethnic groups, the geographical formations of the region and the connections between San Diego and Baja California.

      It is the way that familiar places used to look that brings so many people to the photograph collection of the Historical Society. With two million or more photographs, the SDHS Collection is one of the most important regional collections of photographs in the nation. It allows the public access to San Diego's past and clues as to why it looks like it does today. Decade after decade commercial, journalistic or family photographers in San Diego have focused their work on familiar neighborhoods, beaches, harbors, and buildings. This collection, then, allows researchers the opportunity to see how San Diego looked over one hundred years ago, how it has changed, what was being worn, or driven, or sailed.
