Photography of mountains
Earl Emmons accepted a one-year position in 1920 staffing a fire tower in the Black Hills of South Dakota. This subseries has negatives working for the United States Forest Service in the Black Hills National Forest in southwestern South Dakota in 1920 and 1921. Several of the South Dakota history negatives were titled within the image in ink by Emmons, who included his distinctive monogram of an H with elongated serifs and crossbar, suggesting that he might have intended to market them.
