Cody: [ca. 1915]. Five photographs, each 7 x 9.5 inches. A few small chips at edges of three photos, slightly affecting images. Very light mirroring to one image. Photos captioned in negative. About very good. Item #688
Five scarce large format photos of Shoshone National Forest and Yellowstone by F.J. Hiscock, the noted early 20th-century Wyoming photographer who operated a studio in Cody. Hiscock was particularly well known for his association with Buffalo Bill Cody, both as a personal friend and as personal photographer. The photographs present here are notable not only for their unusual larger format, but also in that they differ from the images published in his souvenir album "Choice Views of the Cody Road and Yellowstone Park" most widely held by institutions. Four photographs are captioned with titles; they include an exterior view of the resort at Pahaska Tepee during a patriotic event, two views of the Shoshone Canyon, and one view of the Shoshone Dam. The fifth photograph does not have a title caption in the negative, but Shoshone Canyon Road and an automobile occupied by a female tourist, her driver, and a tour guide.
