Asahel Curtis, Mount Rainier National Park

Reflection Lake and Mount Rainier, 1919, by Asahel Curtis (Photo 40011)

This gorgeous photo was taken in 1919 by Asahel Curtis and has negative # 40011. The photo shows the peak of Mount Rainier as viewed from the shore of Reflection Lake. There are several photos out there, with proximate negative numbers (e.g., 40009) that were taken from the same angle showing the same or similar view. More modern views of Reflection Lake and Mount Rainier from this angle can be found in this website.

 

The hand tinting in this piece is spotless and extremely detailed. It is a marvel to stare at. The lower right corner of the photo is signed “AC, 40011”. The photo comes in its original bat-wing / piecrust frame, which is in great condition. I acquired this item in 2016 from a private collector.

Personally, I have not yet visited Reflection Lake, and would like to do it one day. For more info about Reflection Lake you can visit:
