Content Description

The collection consists of two photographs. The first image is a review of a South Dakota Regiment in San Francisco during the Spanish American War. The 4 ½” x 7 ½” mounted image shows the regiment marching in formation up a street, led by a band. A number of tents are also featured in the image. The second image is of an unknown ranch or farm. G. D. Francis, a photographer from Miller, DT, took the image. Francis’ images are dated from 1884 to 1902. He had galleries in Miller, Sioux Falls, and Crookston, MN. The 4”x 6” image is mounted but badly damaged on two of the corners. The main features of the image are what appears to be the foundation for a building; a number of smaller buildings are seen in the distance. The trees in the background lead to an assumption that the structure is located near a creek or river. A fenced in building on the top of a hill may also be a school house.
