Description
Photograph of a protective railing at Glacier Point in Yosemite National Park, ca.1900. Two people stand on top of a small overhanging rock in the center of the image that juts out from the side of what appears to be a mountain summit. The person on the left holds onto the flag pole of an American flag with one arm while balancing on a guard railing above the edge of the rock.. The person on the left stands with his hands on his hips. The curves and edges of the rocks that form the mountain are visible in the right foreground while tree covered mountains can be seen in the background.
