In 1874, young Charles Henry Harmon moved to San Jose and became one of the city's fine artists.

His talent was expressed at an early age. He apprentieced with portrait painter Louis Lussier, and worked retouching negatives in a photography studio. He enjoyed visiting galleries in San Francisco and painted in the Santa Clara Valley, on the Monterey Coast and in the Sierras. By his mid twenties, he was selling his paintings exclusively through Gumps in San Francisco. In 1905, he moved to Denver and began doing art work the major railroads, doing promotional art of scenes along their routes. He returned to San Jose where he remained the rest of his life. He exhibited his works throughout the Bay area.
