[Yosemite Valley] Silver Road to Yosemite. Silvertone photographic print on glass.

[Yosemite Valley] Silver Road to Yosemite. Silvertone photographic print on glass. Yosemite, California: Pillsbury's Pictures, n.d. [circa 1920s]. 27.5 x 17.5 cm (10 1/4 x 6 3/4 inches). Framed, with Pillsbury printed label on the back of the frame. Unlike Pillsbury's more characteristic orotone (goldtone) photographs on glass, his silvertone prints are rare. An ink inscription on the paper backing the frame reads: "Given to us as a wedding gift / in 1923 by Don & Mary (Cury [sic]) Tressi[der]. / Mary Cury of Camp Curry (Yosemite)." Mary Curry was the daughter of "Mother" Jennie Curry and David Curry, founders of Camp Curry in Yosemite Valley in 1899, and grew up in Yosemite Valley which became her home at age five. A little rubbing in the emulsion in a few places around the edges, not very noticeable; very good or better. The frame's paper backing is torn at edges and chipped, the chips touching the right side of the inscription with loss of part of "Tressider," and a tear affecting the printed label. A stunning example of Pillsbury's photographic work. (#164933).
