- Collection of photographs and research material concerning railroads, street cars and other public transportation in and around Oakland and Berkeley, California from historian, collector and local railway employee William Everard Gardiner (1869-1949). Gardiner worked for the San Francisco-Oakland Terminal Railways and later the Key System (which took over the SF-O Terminal Railways in 1924). He was Instructor and Superintendent of Schedules through at least 1928. Gardiner was an early member of the Pacific Railway Club and Railway and Locomotive Historical Society. He was also a photographer, and the collection contains negatives and prints made by him, along with reproductions of older images. Some of the photographs by Gardiner document the 1906 earthquake’s effects in Berkeley. There is also information on the general history of Alameda County. The collection contains photographs, manuscripts & typescripts on history (some transcribed), correspondence, newspaper & magazine clippings (primarily 1920s Oakland Tribune articles), ephemera including many examples of train tickets, scrapbooks, and other material. Photographic negatives from this collection are separated and housed in MSS PHOTO 0100 General Photograph Collection.
