The vanishing race by edward s. curtis

Item Number: BSS2


Gold tone, 11" x 14". Original thumbprint frame. Exceptionally bright and open photo, with the L.A. mark, placing this piece around 1920. On the back, "In the shadows, whose illumined crest Speaks of the world behind them where the sun Still shines for us whose day is not yet done Those last dark ones go drifting. East or West. Or North or South - it matters not; their quest Is towards the shadows whence it was begun; Hope in it. Ah, my brothers, there is none. And yet - they only seek a place to rest. So mutely, uncomplainingly they go, How shall it be with us when they are gone. When they are but a mem'ry and a name? May not those mournful eyes to phantoms grow - When, wronged and lonely, they have drifted on Into the voiceless shadows whence they came? - ELLA HIGGINSON
