The WRI is an outreach partnership between CSUSB and the Southern California communities we serve, driven by the vision that sustaining water resources rests on sound research, analysis and public policy collaboration. The Historical Aerial Photo Collection is comprised of images of Southern California beginning in the 1920's. The geographic areas include much of Southern California from deserts to the Pacific Ocean. The images in these flights are from the Joseph Andrew Rowe Water Resources Archives and represent various collections that are held by the Archives.
The Fontana area is in western San Bernardino County, California, United States. This area is west of the City of San Bernardino and east of the Chino area. Most of the area of Fontana is built atop a geologically young, gently southward-sloping alluvial fan from nearby Lytle Creek. The Fontana area is part of the Santa Ana Watershed. Most of the pictures contain metadata further describing the images. Detailed analysis of the pictures or reproductions can be arranged through the CSUSB WRI at (909) 537-7683.
