When Harold A. Taylor first moved to Coronado in 1912 families would visit for extended periods of time and the men would take fishing trips off the coast - even though Taylor's true passion was botanicals - he did manage to photograph an occasional fishing trip bounty!
Here is a perfect example of Harold. A Taylor's love of flowers & California. Pictured is an autochrome he took in 1919 of California Poppies.
Harold A. Taylor and his wife Maud floral and botanical aficionados! They brought this love to Coronado and established the Coronado Floral Association - creating the perfect space to find subjects for his autochrome method of photography.
