This image was once described as depicting a Hawaiian miner in the foreground, but there is no evidence to support (or suggest)
this. The description was presumed to be a modern and inaccurate one and has been revised.
Other images in this unusual medium and format have been cataloged as BANC PIC 19xx.037 [Garden scene with climbing roses,
one woman, and two men], and BANC PIC 2001.169 (Buck Dimick mine....) They are presumed to be by the same phototgrapher. Similar
large pannotypes from the California gold country have been located at the Huntington Library and the Amon Carter Museum.
A larger example is in the collections of the Columbia State Historic Park, Columbia, Calif.
