    TAKING THE CENSUS AT STANDING ROCK, DAKOTA BY BARRY. Wonderful D.F. Barry image depicting hundreds of Native Americans from the Standing Rock Agency as they register for the 1885 census. In 1879, Congress passed an act that provided that any state or territory could conduct an inter-decennial census, which would be partially funded by the federal government. Only the states of Colorado, Florida, and Nebraska, and the Dakota and New Mexico Territories availed themselves of the opportunity. The 1885 census was conducted using the official "census day" of June 1, 1885. Measuring 9¼" x 7¼", this photograph shows minor yellowing and has a pin-hole at upper center, but is otherwise in excellent condition.
