This print of a photograph by legendary Montana photographer Laton Alton Huffman (1854-1931) has been colorized using watercolor tinting and is unmarked on the front. The back is hand marked "354 St Marys lake near St Ignatius mission Mont, an original photo-graph, done in water colors and copyrighted by LA Huffman Miles Mont". The handwriting appears similar to other examples we believe to have been penned by Huffman. Pictured is a beautiful mountain lake landscape with a man in a boat on the lake and a small camp to the left, all lightly tinted with water colors. The image is 3 3/4 x 11 1/2 inches with a thick off-white matting boarder in a 11 5/8 x 19 5/8 inch frame. Provenance: The John Fox Collection

Rating Definition:

Very good as period colorized showing some scattered light staining and otherwise minimal wear. Frame and matting show minor wear.
