The Shades of Orange Photo Collection broadens the representation of Orange area communities in the library's local history photography collection.  The Cypress Street Barrio was a dynamic neighborhood for almost a century, and former and current residents helped preserve the neighborhood's history by bringing family albums and personal photograph collections to the library for duplication and incorporation into the collection.
