Description: Yellowstone National Park. Compiled from records of the G.L.O. under direction of I.P. Berthrong, chief of drafting division G.L.O., 1909. Hand-colored lithograph. Washington, D.C., 1909. 27 1/2 x 21 inches sheet, 37 x 30 1/2 inches framed. The recently constructed Old Faithful Lodge is on the map simply as ?Hotel.? This famous landmark was constructed in three phases between 1903 and 1927. At this stage, only the original section (known today as the Old House) was completed. The effect of stone lithography is evident in the depiction of contour with stipple-style shading.
Literature: Hand-colored lithograph on paper
