Really Old Pics of Yellowstone - Part 3

We continue to share some scans of a few of the photochroms in our collection. Photochrom prints are colorized images produced from black-and-white photographic negatives via the direct photographic transfer of a negative onto lithographic printing plates. The process is a photographic variant of chromolithography, a broader term that refers to color lithography in general.

Travel update:  John spent most of this month travelling and so there have been few updates here on the Island. Yes, we could have updated while travelling, but what's the urgency?  This is retirement, not work. Ha ha. We will soon be sharing some of our voyage from Florida:  through the southern Caribbean, to South America, through the Panama Canal, and stops along the west coast of North America returning to Los Angeles.

Thanks for stopping by John's Island.
