    Albumen Print of Giant Redwood, "The Big Tree on Dolbeer & Carson's Claim, Elk River, Humboldt Co., California---18 FEET IN DIAMETER", 8.75" x 10", 1872. Credited in the caption to Eureka photographer A. P. Flaglor, this image shows eight men, two women, and a dog seated inside a partially hewn redwood tree of magnificent proportions. An account of making this photograph may be found in the April 27, 1872 edition of the Weekly Humboldt Times. The matt exhibits browning per usual; however, the image retains clarity and good tonal contrasts. Mounted in a modern wooden frame of old style.
