Art work of the Mississippi Valley in 1899

Art Work of Valley of the Mississippi from La Crosse, Wisconsin to Keokuk, Iowa


Originally published in multi-part sets, this work features exquisitely crisp, 19th century, artistic, black and white photographs that showcase picturesque views along the Mississippi river and its tributaries from Minnesota to Iowa. Many of these sites have changed physically since they were taken so these photos document an earlier environment.
