Source: Physical Description
Content: The majority of the photographs are tri-fold, mounted on heavy cardboard, and marked with tabs identifying the vantage point. The prints often contain information such as date, photographer’s initials (L.M.), and location. The photographs were originally housed in a green wooden box specifically designed for these images, stenciled “Panoramic Photographs.”
Source: Extended Description
Content: These photographs provide excellent documentation of Yosemite’s topography in the 1930s. Covering 120 degrees of the horizon, they were utilized for many decades by Yosemite lookouts to accurately locate forest fires. Today, in addition to conveying information about historic road and trail locations, changes in vegetation and landscape, and geomorphology, they provide a visual juxtaposition to later photographs that is useful for a variety of scientific, management, and administrative purposes.
