Purchase from the Blaisdell Fund.

Printed on left edge is "California." Printed in the bottom right corner is, "No. 1310. Yo-Semite Indians, Yo-Semite Valley." Printed along right edge is, "John P.

This is an albumen stereograph on cardboard with printed mount. The stereograph has a yellow border around two sepia toned images. The images appear identical and show three people sitting around a campfire. There are several woven baskets on the left and a white dog on the right. Pine trees and rocks appear in the background.

Soule was a Boston photographer/publisher. His California views were probably taken by Martin M. Hazeltine, and purchased by Soule, who published them without credit, a common practice at the time. [DHJ 01/25/2011]
