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 dating from the 1920s. The geographic areas include much of Southern California from deserts to the Pacific Ocean. The images in this flight are from the Joseph Andrew Rowe Collection.

San Bernardino County covers a large area of Southern California, over 20,000 sq. miles. It borders Nevada and the Colorado River to the East and the San Bernardino Mountains West. Some areas are very populated while other areas-most notably the desert areas-are very sparsely populated. These images cover the northwest desert areas, SB Mountain areas, SB Valley area, and southwest desert locations. San Bernardino County is part of the Santa Ana Watershed and the Mojave River Watershed. Most of the pictures contain metadata further describing the images. A detailed visual description can be provided by contacting the WRI at (909) 537-7683. All images are copyrighted by the Water Resource Institute at CSU San Bernardino.
