CAN YOU HELP SOLVE A MYSTERY?
This undated, unattributed photo was recently found in our archives. The only information the back states it was taken of an Indian village on Oak Flat Road, pre- 1900. This would be the rim of what is now Yosemite National Park. 
The print was made from a glass negative, there are several others like it that seem to have been filed sometime in the late 1940s and early 1950s. This is one that I have not been able to identify the photographer for. I have also not been able to identify the makers of the dwellings in the photograph. 
Have knowledge of American Indians in Yosemite or late 1800s photographers?
