Rare early view of Sonora, published in San Francisco by Kuchel & Dresel.

Charles C. Kuchel & Emil Dresel were among the earliest western view makers. The pair published approximately 50 views between 1855 and 1859, of which 41 were California views, 7 were Oregon and the others were of Washington and Nevada towns. The pair became active in 1855, producing 4 views in 1855, 16 in 1856 and 17 in 1857. Kuchel & Dresel published their views both with and without the smaller vignettes around the primary subject matter.
