    LARGE BOUDOIR SERIES IMAGE OF YELLOWSTONE'S GROTTO GEYSER. In the 1860s and 1870s F. Jay Haynes contracted with the Northern Pacific Railroad to produce scenic photographs designed to promote tourism in the Yellowstone area. This image was taken during that time, and shows the Grotto Geyser releasing a huge cloud of steam. Haynes produced a number of these 8" x 5" "Boudoir Series" photographs, this being identified as number 3590. Affixed to a slightly larger photographer's mount, which reads on verso: "Boudoir Series. Our collection of Views in this popular size embraces scenery along the entire line of the Northern Pacific. Yellowstone Park, Columbia River, Seattle, Tacoma and Portland, St. Paul and Duluth to the Pacific." Minor age toning and wear to corners and edges of backing card, else very fine.

    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.
