Description
An album of photographs by Mayo & Weed depicting scenery and glaciers in Alaska; Native Alaskans, homes and totems; and towns and scenery in the western United States and Canada. Many photographs include tourists traveling by train and ship.
Background
Charles A. Mayo and J. E. Weed made up a photography partnership based in Chicago, Illinois. Their firm, Mayo & Weed, acted as “special artists” for Grafton’s Tours, which was also Chicago based. For an Alaskan themed travel catalogue, Weed traveled through the Pacific Northwest, taking photographs as he went. Upon his return, Mayo & Weed published the photos not only in the catalogue, but also in albums to sell.
