Description
Silver gelatin photograph printed from original glass plate negative #27.
The mud flow on the west side of Lassen Peak. Four streams of mud flowed down into Manzanita Lake. Only three are visible here, as one was NE behind the the shoulder to the left. When this picture was published, it was universally agreed that we had a genuine volcano. Notice the new lava at the top of the peak. This mountain is now officially known as Loomis Peak in honor of the photographer.
