About this Item

This dual picture hand-colored lithograph "Residence of Thomas Clark, Upper Ojai Valley, Ventura, Co. Cal., Ventura Flouring Mill 3 Miles North from San Buenaventura Cal. " measures 11.75" x 8.75" and is in very good condition with light foxing and evidence of previous binding to the left edge. This finely colored and expertly detailed lithograph shows the Clarke residence as either visitors or the owners arrive back from their travels. The serene setting shows their land, livestock and barn and their yard where a woman and her dogs walk. The lower image of the flouring mill illustrate the daily workings at the mill as carriages arrive to pick up the flour. Set against an abstract hillside, the flour is shown being brought between warehouses and storing facilities to be distributed. Thomas H. Thompson, formerly Captain Thomas, began his career preparing maps and atlases of Illinois and Iowa counties. At various times of his life he was in partnership with several different men, two of them, Louis Everts and Alfred Andreas, were old acquaintances from his army days. In 1870 Thompson and Everts began publishing atlases, releasing in that year what they called “combination atlas maps.” In the 1870 atlases, lithographic illustrations were placed at the rear of the volumes. After 1870 the illustrations were interleaved with township maps throughout the atlases. The atlases were sold by subscription by traveling salesmen. Thompson and Everts dissolved their partnership in the early 1870s and in 1875 Thompson migrated to California. There he published atlases of Northern California. In partnership with Albert West, he issued atlases of Santa Clara County (1875), Alameda County (1878) and Solano County (1878). All are illustrated with lithographic views and sketches similar to those in the atlases of mid-western counties with a splendid array of lithographed plates showing the farms, houses, and other features of the settlements of Alameda County.
