Description:

The visible portion of this print measures 5 1/2 x 10 1/4 inches and features oil production facilities and oil wells, likely in the oil fields of eastern Montana, and has been lightly colorized with water colors. The print is marked with L.A. Huffman's copyright dated February 1921 in the lower left corner in black ink. Laton Alton Huffman (1854-1931) is famous for his photography of Montana life, including Native Americans, the landscape, wildlife, and ranching. Many of his prints were later colorized and enlarged.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, with a distinct image and attractive color that shows very little fading. The copyright marking is distinct and the print shows very minimal wear overall.
