About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Navajo Reservation: 1930

Navajo Reservation: 1930

Taken on the Navajo Reservation in 1930 near the settlement of Sunrise, AZ. Living in Los Angeles at the time, my grandparents Harvey Hoag Duryée and his wife Grace Bartlett Kissam, were on a trip through the southwest in their new 1930 Chrysler 77 Crown Sedan. The caption on the back, written in Grace's hand, reads "Navajo girls near Sunrise on road from Oraibi - 1930". (Monday morning quarterbacking: I'm fairly certain the child on the back of the burro is a boy...) On this trip they went to places like Durango Colorado, Bryce Canyon in Utah, the Grand Canyon, and throughout Arizona down to Tombstone and Nogales, documenting their trip with pictures along the way.

Thanks Isaak, I will post more from Harvey & Grace's trips as time permits - I think I started with the cream of the crop, however. :-)

Great photo!

Could you post other photos from their trip, if you have them?
