The Old West: 1884 Yosemite Photograph Album by Fiske. Photographer George Fiske is responsible for the twenty-four albumen photographs of Yosemite park taken in 1884 that appear in this album. The photos are approximately 7.5" x 4.5" and are mounted on one side of individual 10" x 7" album pages or boards. The photos are numbered and marked with the photographer's name in the negative. Each view, either in horizontal or vertical format, is titled in ink on the mount. There is some light foxing or mildew scattered throughout, but it is consistent with the age and nature of the item and does not detract to any significant degree. The leaves have come unbound and are detached from the cover. The vast majority of views are scenic in nature. We especially like the final view which shows the "Yosemite Stage and Turnpike Co.'s Coach going down the grade into the Valley."
