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.
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.
122 photographs in 1 album; album 29 x 37.5 cm. (11 x 15 in.). See itemized list under "Additional collection guides."
