    Scope and Content Note

    Photographs show the impact of human activities in Yosemite National Park, including a garbage area and incinerator, an abandoned outhouse, overflow campers camping in meadows, the development of various tourist and employee facilities, crowds of visitors, etc. Many photographs show transportation in and to the park: the last horse stage coach and the first automobile to reach the park. Other transportation photos show bridges, roads, buses, and serious traffic congestion.
