TWO EARLY 1900'S OR LATE 1800'S PHOTOS OF Native American Indian Camps. The first is long and mounted on mat board. It shows three tipis, numerous horses and riders, a blanket wrapped man in a tall hat. The hat is like the Crow tribal men are known for wearing in the very early 1900's. The feathered bonnets, feathered lances and wonderful horse regalia is being paraded through the camp. Sadly, this brown tone photograph is either faded or over exposed. It has had to be reattached to the mat with clear "photo" corners. The actual photo itself is in good shape, no creases, rips, tears or other problems. The mat board is original and other than some previous glue stains is in good shape. I believe the photograph is of a Crow or Blackfoot camp.
THE SECOND PHOTOGRAPH is a small black and white and has the handwritten notation on the back: Blackfeet Village, Billings Montana. There is also a photographer's ink stamp, but I cannot read it. This photo has a very interesting scene! It shows a group of tipis with period cars parked in front of several of the tipis. In the background is a horse drawn covered wagon. There is a windmill and an electric line also shown. What a clash of time periods captured for us! The photograph is in good condition. The bottom left corner has a crease from white border to rear tire of the car. Photo is mounted on white mat board with clear photo corners.
