El Capitan | Yosemite

Editorial Comment for this plate:

El Capitan.

It is not often we have so magnificent a landscape subject to present to our readers. “The Great Falls of the Yellowstone,” by the same author, which embellished these columns several months ago, while equally good in technical treatment, is scarcely so imposing a subject as El Capitan. One is a fitting companion to the other, and both are notable scenes in our great National Park. In this class of work Mr. Jackson is without a rival in this country. This picture is one of the collection of Twelve Photographic Studies published by the Scovill & Adams Company. (p. 291)
