President Hayes at 30th California Admission Day

Quite rare and wonderfully framed stereoview of the 30th anniversary of the admission of California into the Union, September 9, 1880. President Rutherford B. Hayes was present and accounted for on this historic day. The Daily Alta California paper from that day details the account as follows: “RECEPTION OF PRESIDENT HAYES. The Welcoming Programme in Oakland and San Francisco – The Procession, Review, and Serenade in this City – The Route of March. The Presidential train will reach Oakland about noon, and, being switched on the local track, will stop at the Seventh-street Station. There the President and party will be received and welcomed by Professor John Le Conte, President of the University of California, after which the procession of the military and civic organizations will be formed to escort the party to the City Hall, where an address will be dilivered by Senator Fox. The precession will then conduct the President to the Broadway Ferry, where the San Francisco Reception Committee will await him on board the Capital.”
