Lot Details
CAMERON, EVELYN. 1868-1928
15 silver print photographs, most 169 by 109 mm laid down to larger board (two measuring 83 by140 mm), most Montana ranching images, the 13 larger photos with photographer's stamp ("E.J. Cameron, / Terry, Mont.") to verso and most with additional manuscript annotations by Cameron, minor wear throughout.

British-born Evelyn Cameron moved to Montana in the late 19th century and began photographing the environs around her. This small grouping includes images of "Xit [a large cattle company of the period] cattle crossing the Yellowstone to be shipped at Fallon, Mont. Oct 2d 1904"; a second image showing the cattle being herded by rowboat; an image of horses crossing the Yellowstone being herded by rowboat; 2 views of "Mr. Kempton's Ranch"; a view of the V Ranch at Pine Creek; and most intriguingly, a view of a group of men aboard a ferry on the Yellowstone, noted by Cameron, "Fourth of July Party 1903 / Fallon. Mont." This last image is remarkable because Cameron captures the presence of artist Charles Russell among the group.
See illustration.
