    Arizona: Choice Collection of Silver Print Panoramic Photos. There are nineteen [19] period photographs in this fine grouping, each identified in pencil on the verso. They each measure approximately 12" x 3.5" and were taken by unknown photographers, quite possibly engineers working on the Tonta Dam. There are a variety of great views, both in vertical and horizontal format. The locales consist primarily of Mesa and Roosevelt, Arizona and points in-between. Subjects include: cliff dwellings, town views (Roosevelt, Arizona, doomed to be inundated with water upon completion of the dam), a mail coach overlooking a canyon, desert scenery, "Schell's Station" (not a gas station, but a precursor to same!) and numerous landscapes. The photos are in uniformly excellent condition and date circa 1905-1910. The dam opened in 1911 and was renamed the Roosevelt Dam. Former President Roosevelt was the guest of honor at the ceremonies.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
