Original Albumen Photograph of Stagecoach in Fort Bridger

91 [Utah] Carter, C.W., Photographer. Original Albumen Photograph of Stagecoach in Fort Bridger. With imprint on verso of card, C.W.
Carter, S.L. City. Approximately 3 x 4 inches on
gilt edged card. In pencil in a contemporary
hand under photo, “At Bridger 1866.” An
exceptionally crisp image with sharp detail.
The stagecoach shows four horses and two
teamsters, both wearing hats and fur coats,
outside a building. Fort Bridger did not become part of Wyoming until 1868. Stagecoach
photographs are among the rarest of Western photographs, and this one is exceptionally nice.
