Mojave Road

Rudolph D'Heureuse


Drum Barracks - 1863

The Photographic Views of the Mojave Route, El Dorado Canyon and Fort Mojave collection contains photographic prints taken by Rudolph D'Heureuse in 1863. Pictured in the collection is the Mojave Desert region from the San Bernardino Valley and Cajon Pass eastward to the Colorado River and Fort Mojave of Arizona. The reason D'Heureuse photographed this section of the "Mojave Road" and the adjacent region is unclear. It is most likely that he was surveying the area in association with either the Macedonia Mining District or the California State Geological Survey. D'Heureuse's work is considered to be the earliest extant body of survey photographs of this region.
