Description:

The visible portion of this print measures 5 1/2 x 10 1/4 inches and features oil derrick as the central focal point, surrounded by other derricks and production facilities, on what appears to be the plains of eastern Montana. 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, the image crisp and distinct and the copyright marking clear with very minimal wear overall.
