Description: An exceptional original CDV photograph by Lawrence & Houseworth titled on verso: “Washoe Indians— Valley of Lake Tahoe.”
This idyllic image shows a group of Washoe Native Americans sitting in a semi-circle in a grassy field. The central figure holds a small child while another sits beside them, squinting through the sunlight at the camera. They are flanked by a figure in profile with a pack of items on her back and another girl coyly peeking out from behind her bundle. Overall an appealing photograph.
2 cent revenue stamp on verso, 2 ⅜” x 4”. Item #P00081.
Condition: Inked identification in grassy area of photo, otherwise in fine condition with very good contrast and resolution.
