Illustrated with over 400 historic picture postcards, Picturing Berkeley presents a visual record of Berkeley, California during the vital period between 1900 and 1920. While already known as the intellectual center of California and home to the first campus of the University of California (founded in 1868), the city of Berkeley established its civic character between 1900 and 1915 when its population dramatically increased after the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake and Fire.
