Description
The Death Valley Automobile Trip photograph album containing 76 prints appears to be the record of a sightseeing trip made from Los Angeles to Death Valley in 1926. A written record--in the form of diary entries--is also included and consists of a series of detailed captions describing the landscape, landmarks, and individuals encountered in Death Valley. Neither the diarist nor the photographer is identified. The album displays no one emphasis: it consists of a broad range of photographs, from the automobiles and sighteseers to the landscape, abandoned mines, schoolhouses, hotels and homesteads of Death Valley.
Extent
1 album (76 photographic prints); 14 x 23 cm. 76 digital objects
