[Yosemite Valley; Northern and Central High Sierra; Mountains of Northern California and Oregon] Large collection of photographs of Yosemite, the High Sierra, and elsewhere in California and Oregon in five albums dated from 1903 to 1927. xxx photographs in five albums.1) Yosemite 1903 [album title]. 93 prints on 24 leaves with tissue guards, all but two measuring approximately 6x8.5 cm (2 3/8 x 3 1/4 inches). The couple visited Yosemite in early Spring (snow storm and high water). Most of the landscape is photographed from the Valley floor, but the visitors did make the trip from the Valley to Cloud's Rest by way of Vernal and Nevada Falls. Many of the photographs are carefully composed and properly exposed -- and the picture quality improves and rivals that of professional photographers in subsequent years.2).
