GROUP OF NINETEEN PHOTOGRAPHS OF FLATHEAD - Foote, Morris C., Lieut - 1878. 
[Montana, 1878. Nineteen sepia-toned photographs, housed in plastic sleeves and stored in a three-ring binder. Almost all 5 x 7 inches. Three photographs separated into pieces, some somewhat faded. Else good. A group of photographs of the Bigfork and Flathead Lake area of Montana, from the collection of U.S. Army officer Lieut. Morris C. Foote. Highlights include an image of Kootenai Indians near Dayton Creek, located on the west side of Flathead Lake, as well as multiple views of camp scenes in which several men are gathered together, including images of a surveying party and images of hunters armed with their rifles. The two images featuring the surveying party could very well emanate from Foote's scouting expedition in the Black Hills in 1878, while his unit was assisting in building telegraph lines in South Dakota. A view of what appears to be a train accident, a ship in harbor, and landscape photographs are also included. Images from this area of the West during this period are rare.
