Title supplied by cataloger.
Attributed to Carleton E. Watkins based on comparison to his New Series stereographic views.
Mounts are disbound album pages, most with a print mounted on each side.
Captioned in pencil. "Watkins" noted in pencil on each, in later hand.
Although mounted on album pages, prints are the size of Watkins' boudoir card format. Watkins produced these views from his
oversized stereographic camera, often making boudoir cards from one half of the stereographic plate, or stereographs from
detail areas of both halves of the plate. Watkins' numbers in this description are supplied from his New Series stereograph
versions of the same view.
11 photographic prints on 6 card mounts : albumen ; prints 10 x 16 cm.
