About This Item

[South Dakota, 1910. Very good.. Eighteen glass plates, eight measuring 3 x 4 inches (four colored) and ten of them 4 x 5 inches. With photographs printed from the plates. No cracking, minimal chipping at edges. Two small sets of images depicting life in South Dakota at the turn of the century. The first consists of ten images of settlers and scenes on the prairie. There are two plates of women with tents and covered wagons, a nice image of a woman and several girls playing what appears to be Ring Around the Rosie, an image which is captioned on the photographic print "steam driven water well drilling rig," an early airplane, and some settlers outside a homestead. The second series would seem to be from Pine Ridge Indian Agency. These include two photographs which are clearly of Native American children (one of them depicting boys with short hair and "civilized" clothes), three plates which depict a rodeo in the area, an image of someone in a feathered headdress near a teepee, and plates of people with horses.
