Utah, Colorado & Alberta, 1920. 152 photographs, most approximately 3 1/2 x 5 3/4 inches, plus three postcards. Loose photos, some in contemporary envelopes, many with descriptive captions on verso. A few fading or underdeveloped photos, but mostly clear, fine images. An excellent collection of vernacular photography totalling over one hundred and fifty images, which document travel in the American West, principally in Utah, during the second decade of the 20th century. The bulk of the assemblage, about one hundred and twenty photographs, records the progress of a journey via pack horse across northern Utah. These include abundant images of the mountains and scenery of the Wasatch Range, with much coverage of the Bear River and its branches, the Cottonwood Canyons, Timpanogas Cave, and the surrounding peaks, as well as shots of guides, camps, wildlife, and pack animals. Two smaller groups of approximately fifteen photos each detail two other excursions, one through the Bryce and Zion Canyons in southern Utah, and another across Kansas and Colorado then north to Banff by train. An exceptionally well-shot group of vacation photographs, with beautiful and diverse images of the Utah landscape. (Inventory #: WRCAM52095)
