Probably California, not Utah

This series of photos is most likely from Alta, California. Alta is just off Highway 80 in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, in Placer County. There is a backroad that connects Alta to Dutch Flat, similarly a former mining town. Ditches like the one seen in one of the photos, were common in placer mining and later as sources of irrigation and drinking water in communities like this.

Perhaps someone from Placer Co., or there-abouts can confirm this?

Lastly, Bear Photo was a popular photo-processing company in Berkeley, CA.

Alta, Utah?

This is a group of photos taken in Alta, California. The automobile in question is a 1934 Ford and the license plate is California.
