    Quite the dapper dude.

    Looks like it could have been made last week.
    Hmm.....what does that say about current LF photography?
    Thanks,

    And an RV with flanged wheels. Not easy to come by for any photographer, although Union Pacific gave A.J. Russell his own rolling darkroom.

    What an amazing life he had. I read that a year or two before his death he traveled cross country by commercial airline and was served inflight meals! Such a contrast to his earlier travels across the west by horseback and experiences as a soldier in the Civil War.

    I hope I look that good at 59!

    I haven't read his autobiography but I have read

    William Henry Jackson - Framing the Frontier
    by Douglas Waitley
    ISBN 0-87842-381-8
    pub by Mountain Press in Missoula MT in 1998

    It's a very good read and it has an amazing bibliography.

    WHJ was made of stuff much much stronger than any of us.
