Shades of California

Shades of California was a statewide project developed by staff at the Los Angeles Public Library. Under their guidance, libraries throughout the state gathered cherished family photos from the public and amassed them in a special California State Library collection. Beyond the importance to family members, these photos have become a resource of great historical and cultural significance, not to mention a popular book.

In order to capture the excitement and anticipation shared by families and library staff during the project, Huell joins up with the Shades of California team for a special Photo Day. California families share their photos--and memories--with Huell while he chronicles the important story of Shades of California from its beginning.
