Size of tonal image, sharp and clean, light residue from previous mounting on common early Carleton Watkins view of the Yosemite Valley from Washburn’s Point showing Vernal and Nevada Falls in the distance. Especially rich tonal example of this particular vantage point published later by Taber. The Getty museum holds an example without the Taber credit line and titled, Half Dome, a granite dome in Yosemite Valley, Yosemite National Park, photographer Carleton Watkins (1829-1916) made seven trips to Yosemite in the 1860s and 1870s. He created a remarkable documentation of this natural wonder leading to its designation as a National Park.


Isaiah West Taber was another San Francisco institution opening his own studio there in 1871 and somewhat the better business man than his contemporary Carleton Watkins. Acquiring Watkins’ print and negative stock following the photographer’s bankruptcy in 1881, he managed to successfully sell many of Watkins’ early views of the west and California with his own studio credit, rarely if ever crediting Watkins. Ironically, when the 1906 earthquake struck, it also destroyed Taber’s own negative and print collection including his holdings of Carleton Watkins works (reported as "eighty tons of portrait negatives and twenty tons of view negatives.”).
