Please join Mechanics Institute Library for an event: “Picturing the News: A look at the SF Examiner photographic negative collection” on Monday, Dec. 2 at 4 p.m.

Seven years ago the Bancroft Library at UC Berkeley received a gift from the Fang Family of the San Francisco Examiner photographic archive, a rich collection of photographs documenting twentieth century San Francisco and more. Pictorial Processing Archivist Lori Hines will present a slideshow and talk on trends in journalism, culture, and history she observed while sorting, re-housing, and describing the collection of 3.6 million negatives from ca. 1930-2000. Images include San Francisco landmarks, World War II home front, celebrities, bohemian life, disasters and vice.
