New exhibit opens at West County Museum
Photographer captures local history
West County Museum presents Through the Lens of William S. Borba. This exhibit tells the story of native Californian and long-time Sebastopol resident William S. “Bill” Borba (1886-1971) and his passion for photography and local history.
Borba pursued his love of photography and local history by photographing Sonoma County events and everyday life. In the 1910s he documented the first Gravenstein Apple Shows using glass negatives. He captured iconic Sebastopol images of the 1917 Sebastopol Carnegie Library, local soldiers off to France in 1918 and the 1923 Chamber of Commerce building. In the mid-1920s he produced photos for the Analy Union High School yearbook Azalea. Shown in this exhibit are 54 of Borba’s extraordinary photographs spanning 1900 to mid-1930s.
Through the Lens of William S. Borba runs April to August 10, 2014.
