J.K. Hillers
Powell Survey, Utah
"Making Pictures"

A "boudoir" (so-called) size yellow mount stereo view (4-1/4x7"), taken in July, 1875 on the Aquarius Plateau, southern Utah. The view is listed as #159 in the 1875 Powell Survey series, and is titled "Making Pictures."
Believed to have been taken by Almon Harris Thompson or Grove Karl Gilbert, the view shows Jack K. Hillers hunkered down, examining a glass negative. His portable darkroom may be on the ground beside him, his camera (covered) on a tripod to his left. A chemical bottle with a funnel sits to one side, along with Hillers' hat and presumably a negative box. A pack horse and a riding horse are also in the background.
A historically significant image, it has been used as the frontispiece in Fowler's book from the Smithsonian Press, The Western Photographs of John K. Hillers(1989). The mount corners show minuscule wear; the image is in Excellent condition, and the full green Powell Survey label is on the reverse. $750.00
