Photo Negative Collection of the Inter-Tribal Indian Ceremonial in Gallup, New Mexico
1930. Stunning collection of negatives depicting the Inter-Tribal Indian Ceremonial in Gallup, New Mexico. The collection contains 328 photo negatives taken in the 1930s. We believe the collection to represent the work of Burton Frasher of Frasher Foto, Pomona, California. The negatives, which measure 3 ½" x 6", were likely used to create real photo postcards. Only 3 photos have photographer/publisher imprints: "Tony's Photo, Gallup, New Mexico" and "Villanueva Photo, Gallup New Mexico"; and only a few have titles in the negative. Although no other photographer information is noted, a handful of images match up almost exactly with known Frasher Foto RPPCs. Negatives are housed in a green metal box. Negatives are in very good to fine condition with no noted wear; a few negatives show fingerprints. We have all of the negatives scanned, please call for more images.
