Fifty-three stereoviews, plus one duplicate, of Yosemite Valley and the California Big Trees scenic views. All marked with
the studio imprint of John P. Soule. This "California" series of photographs was produced by the photographer Martin Mason
Hazeltine (1827-1903), though no credit is given him on these images. Hazeltine, a Vermont native, moved to California and
established a studio in Mendocino in the late 1860s. Among his works, he produced many western images, including this Yosemite
series, and one on the Yellowstone. His photos were published by other firms, including J. P. Soule, and Lawrence & Houseworth.
