Vintage early University of California picture book of views. Published by the Student's Cooperative, University of California, Berkeley. The early sepia-style photos feature campus buildings and scenes including North Hall, the Library, California Hall, the Chemistry Building, an approach to the campus, the football statue and more. 22 pages softcover in very good condition. It has stunning detail and wonderful craftsmanship, small tears to front cover. This is a larger size format than normal, measuring, 12 1/2 inches by 10 1/2 inches in size. The cover is a picture of the Greek theatre. The last page of the book contains a double-wide foldout of a concert in progress at the theatre. Made by the Albertype Company, Brooklyn. Original string holding the album together is present and in great shape. Unobtrusive blind stamp on the cover from the Western Historical Society. Undated, but likely early 1900s based on the Victorian style dresses the women pictured are wearing. A great piece of Cal history!
