Photo NumberPH036_5276
Title on ObjectDwellings of Columbia River indians.
General NotesAn outdoor view of flat, rocky ground near the Columbia River. In the background of the image is the far side of the riverbank. The expanse of land on the other side of the river is flat and open, with some low bluffs near the bank, and with no sign of trees or vegetation. On the closest shore are three tipis, made of mats or canvas or both. In the center of the photo are two people in western garb, seated on horses. The figure on the left faces the camera, wears dark clothing or a suit, and is riding a white horse. The person appears to be holding a staff or pole in the right hand. The horse has a dark saddle blanket. The man and horse on the right are in profile to the camera. The horse is dark, and the man's lighter trousers and coat stand out. Both people wear broad-brimmed hats.
