[Garden scene with climbing roses, one woman, and two men.]
The men are seated, and the woman is standing among the roses. A house is in the background. Although there is no direct evidence,
the image is believed to be in the California gold country, perhaps near Columbia, Calif.
Pioneers -- California
The location has been inferred based on similar images of known locales in the gold country. Examples of this unusual medium,
believed to be by the same photographer, can be found at the Huntington Library, the Amon Carter Museum, and the Columbia
State Historic Park. The Bancroft Library holds two related pannotypes of this size, cataloged as BANC PIC 1989.014 (Mining
scene with a flume...) and BANC PIC 2001.169 (Buck Dimick mine....)
