William Henry Jackson Photochrom Collection, 1898-1905


William Henry Jackson, in partnership with the Detroit Photographic Company, took black and white photographs that were reproduced into color photochroms for sale as postcards or prints. The majority of the images in this collection are landscapes of Colorado, Montana and New York State, particularly in Yellowstone National Park and the Adirondack region. Some images are architectural, including one of the Miles Brewton House (Pringle House), Charleston, S.C. All images are approximately 18×23 cm and were created through what Jackson described as a “photo-lithographic process for reproducing pictures in color.”
