In photos: The Mazamas, 100+ years ago

July 19, 2015 /Photography News/ Have you ever wondered what your grandfather did for fun? While some undoubtedly whittled their lives away, others were out conquering the wilderness. If you’re from Oregon, ol’ grandpa might have even been part of the Mazamas.

On top of Mt. Hood, the original 105 charter members of the Mazamas founded their organization 121 years ago, on 19 July 1894. Since the organization’s founding, the Mazamas have fought for environmental preservation, built a number of lodges, named Mt. Mazama, and, of course, promoted and taught basic climbing education.

    My grandfather was a master colorist for Kiser Photo, circa 1912.

    I have some original 1910 & 1911 Kiser Photo Co. photographs. "For The Great Northern Railway". All are various sizes. All are described on back of each photo in pencil and in penciled numbers. I have done plenty of research and believe these are originals and never have been seen by public. Any idea of value?

    Those are some really fantastic photos. I can't stop looking at the ice photos.
