Excellent F. Jay Haynes Boudoir Image of Fort Washakie, Wyoming, circa 1880. Noted Western photographer F. Jay Haynes produced this bird's eye view of Fort Washakie (originally Fort Brown), built in 1869 as a sub post to Fort Bridger, on the newly created Shoshone Indian Reservation. In 1878, the name was changed to Fort Washakie, honoring the chief of the Eastern Shoshone people - the first and only fort to be named after an American Indian chief. Fort Washakie served as a military post from 1869 to 1909, then became an Indian Agency in 1913. Image depicts numerous fort buildings in the background, with several homesteads along a river in the foreground. It measures approximately 8.25" x 5" and is affixed to Haynes' slightly larger backing mount with his decorative imprint on verso. From the Emory A. Cantey Western Collection.

    Condition: Minor age toning and wear to mount corners, else fine.
