1998-04-01 - Album, Photograph

"Honeymoon Album" belonging to Ray Sheppard and his wife, Jennie Smith Sheppard. Most of the photographs were taken in 1932 with both personal and purchased photos. There are many pictures of the O'Neal Ranch, the Biagi Ranch and the Halliday property near Seal Rock. The main area seems to be Point Arena, although there are pictures of the rivers from the Russian River north to the Navarro River. One picture says, "looking down the Navarro from Jennie's homesite on the Navarro Ridge." There are also pictures of Rohnerville, the Rancheria, and fishing on the Garcia River.
