This photo is from Sutter's Fort State Historic Site, Sacramento, California. Its caption reads:

Sutter's oldest son, called August, arrived in California in 1848. As his father's business manager, he helped clear his debts. But Sutter Sr. never forgave his son for helping establish Sacramento, and fired him as business manager. August lost money in his own real estate dealings and, in poor health, moved to Mexico. There he became a successful businessman and diplomat.
