We recently received a large number of photographs from the Contra Costa Times when they moved out of their Walnut Creek offices. Included in the collection are many pictures that have little to do with Contra Costa County. These include pictures of famous actors, musicians and other names in the news. Additionally, there are a number of publicity photos from old movies and TV shows in the collection. Prices for these pictures, many of which have been bundled by subject or person, can range from $1.00 to $50.00, depending on the size and fame of the subject. They are on sale on a first-come, first-served basis. Stop by the center during our opening hours soon for the best selection! If you are looking for a specific person or photo, you can e-mail us here and we will let you know if we have it.
CCCHS Past President and Curator of the San Ramon Valley Museum Beverly Lane has extended the great photos and research from our wildly successful exhibit on Electric Trains in Contra Costa County in 2012 into a booklet that the Society is proud to make available to the public.
