About This Item

Detroit, MI: Detroit Photographic Co.. Good. Print. Set of three early 20th century photochrom prints produced by the Detroit Photographic Co. From photos by William Henry Jackson. Title, reference number, and copyright in gilt lettering on bottom of each print. Two of the prints have a copyright date of 1901, the other is dated 1907. Each print measures approximately 9 x 7 inches. Two numbers written in pencil on versos, which are otherwise blank. Light toning to edges of all prints, likely from previous matting. Very minor wrinkling; one print has a three-inch scratch. Each print has two pieces of tape on verso. Overall, good condition. This set offers three vibrant shots of Colorado scenery taken by William Henry Jackson (1843-1942) , one of the great landscape photographers of the American West. These prints were produced by the Detroit Photographic Company, which later became the Detroit Publishing Company. The firm obtained exclusive rights to use the Swiss-invented photochrom process to create colorful postcards, prints, and albums at a time when true color photography was commercially impractical. Jackson joined the Detroit Photographic Company in 1897, bringing his stock of around 10,000 negatives with him (Library of Congress). Set includes the following images: 1) “53111. Pike’s Peak and the Gateway, Garden of the Gods, Colorado”; 2) “53101. Seven Falls, Cheyenne Canyon, Colorado”; 3) “53139. Pillars of Hercules, South Cheyenne Canyon, Colorado”. .
