Estancia “La California”
20th Century Photos

These photos were taken of the estancia during the first half of the 20th Century.  Family photos, taken at the Cali during the same period, are located on the pages of Willie (WOBz, 1900-1910) and Willie (WABz, 1910-1955).  More recent family group photos (e.g. reunions), because they include living persons, are found in the password protected Current Events pages.

December 1937

It is quite possible these photos were taken for Malcolm.  At that time he was in the U.S. attending the University of Illinois.
