    H.E. TOUGH RIDERS - YELLOWSTONE PARK - LARGE FORMAT IMPERIAL CARD - circa 1899 This is a great large format Imperial card photograph of Howard Eaton's Tough Riders in Yellowstone Park. The image is very crisp and sharp with excellent contrast, showing men and boys of various ages in cowboy gear. Some of the men possibly worked for Eaton, there is an older Asian man to the rear behind Eaton. On the reverse of the photo in pencil someone has written, "Howard Eaton on White horse". The card measures 10.75"x 8.5" and has one very minor fold that runs along the top.

    Howard Eaton was an early Yellowstone Park guide and outfitter, and a trail is currently named after him. The trail runs, "from Clematis Gulch, just behind Liberty Cap, in Mammoth, to Swan Lake Flat, and then through the west edge of the Hoodoo Mts" and is still currently used by hikers.
