Title devised by cataloger.
Album of photographs (positives) by William Henry Jackson.
Each photograph is mounted on ivory cardstock, with single gilt rule border around print, with gilt-lettered captions ("W.H. Jackson, photo.", "Washington, D.C.", and frequently the place name).
Most of the photographs have a catalog number that was apparently scratched into the negative.
Most of the cardstock mounts have handwritten pencil notes giving the U.S. Geological Survey accession number, the year 1871, and, in some cases, more details about the location.
