Achievement 1: Image Unlocked!

You did it! The first portion of the image is unlocked, with more than five comments received!

This portrait of an important Paiute man dates from between 1871 and 1874. It seems that his name was Tau-gu, and he was acquainted with an important fellow in Arizona history.

This public domain photograph was believed to have been taken by Frederick Samuel Dellenbaugh, and is archived by the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library, Yale University.

Want to know more about the Paiute people?

Interested in learning about early photography?

To see more of the image, take part in the quests and then make a comment on this blog.
