Special Exhibit: An Alaskan Tour by F. J. Haynes
This exhibition consists of an album of 24 vintage album prints from the series "Alaska Views" taken by the noted Western and Yellowstone photographer F. Jay Haynes (1853-1921) circa 1891. They illustrate the landscape as seen from a steamer tour along the Alaskan coast.
Each view is mounted on boudoir-size card (5.25 x 8.5 inches) with reverse imprint for "Alaska Views ... Photographed and Published by F. Jay Hayes & Bro., Official Photographers N.P.R.R. 392 Jackson St., Cor. 6th, St. Paul, Minn. Yellowstone Park and Northern Pacific Views." Also imprinted on reverse is a list of views in the series. This group of images was found together in what appears to be a Haynes-produced album bearing his imprint on the table-of-contents page.
