DescriptionOutstanding Cabinet Card of Ponca Burial Grounds, circa late 1880s. Captured by Oklahoma Territory photographer T. Croft, this haunting image features several small wood shacks where deceased Ponca were interred. Waving above the burial houses, an American flag featuring 42 stars places the date of this image in the late 1880s (Idaho became the 43rd state in 1890). Excellent contrast. Inscribed on the negative: "Ponca Indian Burying Ground." Affixed to Croft's gilt and scallop-edged photo mount which bears Croft's gilt "Oklahoma City, O.T." imprint.
Condition: Image and mount are in outstanding condition - bright, clean, and sharp. Minor wear to mount corners, else very fine.
