I saw a review of this site in the Journal of American History, and it sounds like it could be used to devise lessons about any topic related to the history of California.  To quote the reviewer, "Whether a photograph of a real Rosie the Riveter in the Richmond shipyards or an 1888 political cartoon that depicts Uncle Sam beating back a Chinese snake entering through the 'back gate' of British Columbia, these sources demonstrate that investigating California history can reveal regional, national, and international stories."
