|Albumen print, Stereo card, late 1870s|
Printed on mount recto "Descriptive Views of the American Continent / Continent Stereoscopic Company Publishers" and the title "Nez Perces Indians".
The Continent Stereoscopic Company was a major publisher of pirate and copy negatives (although they did issue some original work.) They produced photographs from 1870 to 1890. A great percentage of their views were of western scenes, and among those notable "borrowed" images were some by C.R. Savage, F. J. Haynes and William Henry Jackson.
Their images of the Nez Perces, who ranged along the Snake River in western Idaho, northeast Oregon and southeast Washington are quite scarce.
