Watkins #863 - Indian Chiefs, with Commissioner of Santa Fe, New Mexico
Image courtesy of: Bill Lee
Photographers number:863
Title:Indian Chiefs, with Commissioner of Santa Fe, New Mexico
Notes:Note from Jeremy Rowe: The New Mexico images may have been obtained from another photographer since I am not aware of him traveling to the Santa Fe area. An early Arizona photographer, Polycarpo Bagnasco, was active in Santa Fe (in the 1870s and possibly again in the early 1880s) and he later worked for both Watkins and Taber. Little of his work is marked so almost impossible to compare, but he should be on a list of possible sources if they were originally created by another and acquired/marketed by Watkins.

Photographer:Carleton E Watkins   (Nov 11, 1829 — Jun 23, 1916;  Active approx. 1853 — 1896)
Publisher:I W Taber
Format:Stereograph

  • Don't use abbreviations or contractions.
  • In general tags should be singular rather than plural (tree, not trees, etc.).
  • Spell out street numbers (First Street rather than 1st Street).
  • If the text of a tag needs to be edited after it's created send an email request to information@carletonwatkins.org.
