Salt Lake City, Utah: Savage & Ottinger Fine Arts Gallery. 2-1/2 x 4 inches. Mounted; about fine with some spotting. 2-1/2 x 4 inches. British-born Charles Savage (1832-1909) came to New York in the 1850's and after being introduced to Mormonism and photography, moved to Salt Lake City. In partnership with George M. Ottinger (1833-1917) he was one of the most successful photographers West of the Mississippi, specializing in Rocky Mountain landscapes, life on the plains, and Salt Lake City and Mormonism related images. "During the partnership, Savage, worked as field man, preferring the out-of-doors. Throughout the remainder of the nineteenth century he was the best-known photographer between the Mississippi and Texas. His photograph of the joining of the Central Pacific and Union Pacific railroads at Promontory is among the most celebrated documentary photographs of the American West" (Collector's Guide to Nineteenth Century Photographs, 62). Savage's studio burned in 1883, destroying most of his prints and negatives. Savage images are accordingly scarce The 1000 Mile Tree marks the length of the Union Pacific Railroad, traveling west from Omaha, Nebraska. (Inventory #: 235259)
