Photogaphing the Historical Landmarks of California
As I travel around the state I am taking detours from my destinations in attempt to see and document all of California's Registered Historical Landmarks (1115 at last count*). I am not sure if I will ever see them all, but this website will link you to the Flickr galleries I have created of all the sites I have visited. As I document new sites I will be adding those as well.
* Even more when you count duplication of numbers i.e. 939 Which has 10 markers and 985 with 5 markers plus others
