Lantern Slide of the Week: Another B. Comstock Photo

Here’s another one from B. S. Comstock, with no caption.  Anybody recognize the peak?

This is number 739 of 4,000 or so lantern slides, and finishes out the first storage drawer.  Adam McFarren figures it’s taken him about a year to get this far, volunteering on it twice a week for a few hours.  That means he’s going to have to stick around for several more years at least.  Good!

Lantern Slide of the Week: Lake Oesa

This time we actually know a bit about the photographer!  The photo was taken by Benjamin S. Comstock, an early AAC member.  You can read about him in the 1942 AAJ In Memoriam, page 481.  He joined the AAC in 1908, and climbed between 1890 and 1928.  What do you think the date of this photo is?
