Two Original Photographs From 1890-91 of the Pine Ridge Agency, Near the Site of the Wounded Knee Massacre

Two original albumen photographs taken by Northwestern Photo Co. of Chadron, Nebraska, whose company is well known for documenting the aftermath of the Wounded Knee massacre. One photo shows a gathering of Lakota Sioux, with the "Indian School" of the Pine Ridge Agency in the background. During the time preceding the Massacre, children wouldn't be allowed to leave this school, effectively held hostage in order to control their parents. The second photo shows "Sioux Indians gathering for the 'Beef Issue'. P.R. Agency, S.D. 6/10-1891" according to the titling in the negative. Each photo measures 7" x 4" upon mat measuring 10" x 7". Some soiling and buckling to mat, but photos are very good, with especially good contrast to Beef Issue photo.
