Two original albumen photographs from 1891, taken by Northwestern Photo Co. of Chadron, Nebraska, whose company is well known for documenting the aftermath of the Wounded Knee massacre. One of the photos, published in ''Eyewitness at Wounded Knee'', is titled in the negative, ''Disarming Hostile Indians / Pine Ridge Agcy S.D.'' and also partially captioned in the negative, ''Hostiles Coming In''. Photo shows Native Americans, many of them the Ghost Dancers, coming back to Pine Ridge in January after the Massacre and being forced to disarm. The second photo, on the verso, shows ''Omaha Dancers'' on 3 July 1891, taken by photographer Clarence Moreledge. Photos measure 7'' x 4.25'', affixed to an album mat measuring 10'' x 7''. Some buckling and staining to mat. Photos are a bit light, overall very good condition.
