Original Large Format 6.5" x 8.5" Antique Glass Plate Negative

Description:  Marvelous detail in this c.1921 view showing men parked in a row of three "Sterns-Knight" automobiles located just outside the entrance gate of "Camp Curry" located in Yosemite National Park. Pennant like signs in car windows reads: "S.F. Call Motor Car Dealers - Yosemite Run". License plates with date of 1921 are all visible in close-up scans (see additional scans provided).

"Camp Curry was founded in 1899 by David and Jennie Curry, two schoolteachers from Indiana. The pair dreamed of visiting Yosemite, but found that they could not afford the coach fare into the park and still pay the going rate for park lodging at $4 per night. This led to the establishment of Camp Curry - offering affordable room and board within Yosemite; a legacy that continues to this day. The camp was originally comprised of a dozen tents with a common dining center. Its popularity allowed it to quickly grow to hundreds of tents within a few short years. Entertainment played a key role in Curry's success, with nightly performances and the famous Firefall. By 1922, Camp Curry also featured a dance pavilion, pool hall, soda fountain, nightly movies and a gas station and service garage. A few years later, a swimming pool and ice skating rink were added to the onsite facilities."

Please see closeup cropped scans provided for additional detail.
