This collection includes 66 studio photographs, carte de visites, and tintypes of early and
prominent Californio family members. The families are predominantly from the Orange
County area and include the prolific and prominent Yorbas, Peraltas, and Sepulvedas,
the first three land grant families that received titles for areas which include the present
day UC Irvine campus from King Ferdinand VII of Spain in the early 19th century. Also
included are portraits of members from the Avilas, Burruel, Dryden, Gless, Landell,
Lugos, Pryor, and Ríos families. Individual and group portraits of adults predominate,
although there are a number of child and infant portraits. Also of interest are photographs
of a wedding party, Soledad Pryor Landell and Peregrina Yorba bridal portraits, and an
unidentified priest. Several of the 17 tinypes are hand-colored
