Western Survey Photographs: A Checklist of the Stereographs from the Clarence King and George M. Wheeler Explorations, 1867-1874

Checklist 2

Stereographs from Lieutenant George M. Wheeler's Explorations West of the One Hundredth Meridian, 1871 through 1872, published 1873 by the U. S. Engineer Department

View across Grand Cañon
Timothy H. O'Sullivan.
No. 138. View across Grand Cañon, 1871.

In 1873, stereographs from the first two years of George M. Wheeler's expedition were published by the U.S. Engineer Department, along with a catalogue listing each view. Timothy O'Sullivan's 1871 of the Colorado River and Arizona are included in this set. To make the series complete, William Bell's 1872 views of Utah, the Colorado River, and geological scenes from the set are listed here as well. The stereographs are numbered irregularly. Titles are transcribed here exactly as printed on the mounts. The stereographs are albumen silver prints on four-by-seven-inch mounts. Unless otherwise noted, all stereographs are from the collections of the Library of Congress.
