    Expedition Survey Albumen: Colorado River by Mathew Brady Associate. An 11" x 8" deep sepia photograph identified in the pale yellow section of a two-tone mount as: "Black Canon [sic], Colorado River, From Camp 8, Looking Above." and "T. H. O'Sullivan, Phot. No. 8." O'Sullivan was an employee of Mathew Brady who took most of the Civil War battlefield images that Brady published. This is a particularly fine image depicting a seated man in a dory making notations in a small book. The mount has the Corps of Engineers logo and the inscription: "Explorations in Nevada and Arizona. Expedition of 1871 - Lieut. Geo. M. Wheeler, Com'dg." Some toning and light soil around the perimeter, but generally excellent.
