Description:

These two prints both feature turn of the century railroad themes, both appearing to be located in the American West. The framed example featured a track laying team and their equipment laying railroad track near Miles City, Montana, in the winter time. The lower left is marked "C.M.St.P+P TRACK LAYING OUTFIT NEAR MILES CITY, 1908", and the lower right has the L.A. Huffman copyright and "232B". The other print is attached to card stock that has a faint marking at the bottom, likely that of the studio that produced it, which appears to give the location as North Dakota. The print shows a large crown of people standing around a derailed train. L.A. Huffman became one of the legendary photographers of the American West by photographing all aspects of life there, with this piece being a prime example.

Rating Definition:

Very good, both of the prints have distinct images and some scattered light wear. The frame and card stock are both fine with some mild handling/storage wear.
