Thank you for coming to the Watkins Photographic Archive Project website. The goal of the Project is to make my extensive collection of photographs available online to the public. I am excited to team up with the Fresno Regional Foundation and the Henry Madden Library at CSU Fresno to help make this Project a reality.
Until the Project is up and running through the Madden Library's website, you can view a broad range of selected historic and current photographs through the “Photographs” link. The Index lists links to each event by date. For now, you may download my photographs for personal, non-commercial use.
I have found an easy way to 1) support my Photo Archive Project, 2) lower your electric bill, and 3) reduce your carbon footprint, all at no cost to you.
The Howard K. Watkins Photographic Archive Project has partnered with Real Goods Solar for a Summer Fundraiser!
Real Goods Solar has over 30 years experience in the solar industry with hundreds of installations here in the Central Valley. Imagine that you could choose between PG&E's monopoly and a new utility, which offered cleaner and cheaper electricity. Real Goods Solar allows you to make that switch right now! Real Goods Solar customers now have the choice EITHER to purchase a solar electric installation OR to purchase just the electricity from that system. Hundreds of Central Valley homeowners have “gone solar” without incurring any debt or spending any money, except for their monthly solar electricity expense -- which is less than what they were paying before they went solar!
Please contact my friend Seth (Seth.Tilley@RealGoods.com or call him (559) 288-0771) to find out if going solar will work for you. Real Goods has agreed to donate $500 to the Howard K. Watkins Photographic Archive Project for every customer that has their system installed through this referral! You can then help the environment, reduce your electric bill, and get support for the Howard K. Watkins Photographic Archive Project without spending a dime!
The success of this historic Photo Archive Project is dependent on sufficient funding.

As this is my personal website, I have also included a link to some family genealogy, as this is another of my interests. The Potpourri link has some very interesting items. Thank you.
