Walter Minton, dog-catcher -- beg pardon, S.P.C.A. agent -- receives thanks of Barbara O'Ferrell for bringing in her dog.
The Library owns the photo morgue of the San Francisco News-Call Bulletin, a daily newspaper that covered the time period from the 1920’s to 1965. Much of the San Francisco History Collection comes from the News-Call Bulletin morgue. However, the morgue also includes national and international subjects that have not been digitized or cataloged.
