NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN PHOTOGRAPH of an Osage or Quapaw family standing in front of a period appropriate touring car with the sign: "At Glen Cove on Pikes Peak, Aug. 10, 1936". These photographs were very popular with both the Osage and Quapaw families living in Oklahoma. The Osages were known as the richest tribe in the world due to the massive amount of oil found on their lands in Osage county. Their chief made a deal for all mineral rights when they were moved to Oklahoma. Who knew about oil then!??? The Quapaws made their own deal for all the coal rights on their lands, and, that was a massive deal. In the early 1900's both tribes traveled the world and the United States extensively. Note the clock in the background.
Photograph has been treated poorly through the years. Nicked and dinged corners, two large creases on the left side of the image, a few fly specks (?), age discoloration, and some staining on the back. Photograph is mounted on acid free white mat board with clear scrap book corners.
Photograph measures: 6" by 3 3/4"
Photograph was stored in a large metal tin with an Osage family until about 20 years ago.
Thank you for your interest! My price reflects the damage I have mentioned. All Photographs and postcards will be mailed in an acid free clear protector inside a hard envelope.
