55 items. 1) Lot of 46 postcards, most early, including 14 real photo. Real photo include a very rare view of Meyers in the 1940s; a rare shot of the golf course at Glenbrook; an early fishing scene; plus multiple shots of Tallac, Emerald Bay, two of Tahoe from Echo Summit, and a few other scenery. The other postcards are mostly early printed cards of Glenbrook, Emerald Bay, Tallac, scenery, stage leaving Saints Rest on the road to Tahoe, etc. Twenty of cards were mailed, 1909-1946. A very nice collection! 2) Seven high-quality reprints of early Lake Tahoe photographs. Three appear to show a family vacationing at the Lake in 1906 (as written on reverse), with two scenes of a horse-drawn carriage and one of the family eating at Emerald Bay. These three are 3.5 x 6" The other four photographs are larger (4.5 x 7") and appear to be later (1930s or 40s?). Two of Glenbrook (one from a boat, the other of a Comstock pier), one showing the front yard at the Tahoe Tavern, and the last shows people on a small boat at a dock. Also included are two negatives of much older Tahoe scenes: Glenbrook in logging heyday and half of a Central Pacific Stereoview showing a man sitting in the woods (with a print from that negative). Please inspect. Date: Location: Lake Tahoe, California HWAC# 60371
