Are you feeling peckish and want to look at restaurant menus from 1905? Do you have a yen to see advertisements from 1890? Then we have the resource for you. Our massive ephemera files include rarities like historic event programs, sheet music, certificates, receipts, shape books, campaign memorabilia, trade cards, posters, bottle stoppers, buttons and more! Although, we don't have online records for all of the items in these files, you can get a feel for the scope of this amazing collection by searching the California Information File II. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
