Two original albumen prints from 1891, taken by Northwestern Photo Co. of Chadron, Nebraska, whose outfit is well known for documenting the aftermath of the Wounded Knee massacre.

Photograph, likely taken by George Trager measures 7'' x 4.25'', affixed to an album mat, the other side of which another 7'' x 4.25'' photo is affixed: a portrait of several Sioux survivors along with scout Frank Gerard, Major John Burke, and J.M.

Identified in the negative as ''No. 67'', along with the men, photograph was taken by George Trager. Some buckling and staining to mat.
