Saleroom notices

  • The printing dates of the photograph are from the time of the negative in 1927 and 1937. Adams suffered a darkroom fire in 1937 and the negative was slightly damaged on the top and left-hand edge, which necessitated him trimming off about 1/4 inch from each. Images printed after that date are missing the very top of Half Dome.
