[Livingston, Montana and Yellowstone Photo Album].

Livingston, Montana, Yellowstone National Park, and other locales, 1916–1918. Oblong 4to (7.5” x 11.25”), flexible brown leather with embossed landscape scene on front cover, cord ties at spine. 167 photographs (mostly silver prints, approx. 2.5” x 2” to 6” x 8”), 7 images hand-tinted, 2 photos laid-in; 2 photos dated 1916 in pencil in image, another photo inscribed in ink “Bayonet Practice, Camp Lewis, 1918.” Front paste-down inscription in white ink reading: “Joseph F. Scherieble, Livingston, Mont.” Scherieble’s ownership label on front paste-down as well. Some images captioned in white ink on the mount; a few photos with white ink borders.

An appealing album of 167 photos documenting the Livingston, Montana scene and Yellowstone National Park, as well as Wrangel Island, Alaska; Petersburg, Alaska; Seattle, and Tacoma, including photos taken at Camp Lewis, a World War I training camp in Tacoma.

Compiled by Joseph F. Scherieble (1895–1953), this album mainly consists of photos he apparently took himself on various outings and occasions. Included here are many lovely shots of wildlife in the region, including white tailed deer, antelope, elk, buffalo, big horn sheep and bear. Also featured are fine images of landmarks in Yellowstone and the surrounding area including Tower Falls, Grasshopper Glacier (in Park County, Montana), “Lava Arch” (Roosevelt Arch) in Gardiner, Hymen Terrace, “Scenes on Emigrant Gulch,” Yellowstone Falls, Tower Falls, Corwin Hot Springs, Mt. Baldy, Old Faithful and Old Faithful Camp, moody views of the Yellowstone River at night, and so forth. The subjects of the photos taken in Livingston include a train station, a steam shovel, the bridge across the Yellowstone River, local characters, friends, and family. A few images show Scherieble and a group of men hunting. Several photos included here were taken by commercial photographers, whose names and inventory numbers in the negative have been obliterated—apparently an attempt by Schereible to ‘integrate’ them. In one instance, the name of Yellowstone photographer W. S. Berry can still be made out, and a few other images included here were likely taken by him as well.

Concluding the album are a number of images of west coast subjects, all evidently taken when Schereible traveled that way to train at Camp Lewis. These include photos of Ballard Bridge in Seattle; Point Defiance Park, Tacoma, etc., as well as views taken at Wrangel Island and Petersburg, Alaska. These shots are followed by forty-six images documenting Scherieble’s time at Camp Lewis. Scherieble was evidently a graduate of Gonzaga University and had family in the Pacific Northwest.

CONDITION: Very good, minor wear to covers, color-tinted photos faded, occasional minor wear to photos, discoloration to a few images.
