Artist Point is on the south rim of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. Upper Falls is in view in both pictures. Probably the first white man to visit the site was Jim Bridger in 1846. It is seen here showing Teddy Roosevelt’s famous cousin- FDR- during a 1937 tour.
Located in Upper Geyser Basin, Grotto Geyser erupts about every eight hours to an average height of 10 feet. Durations vary from one hour to as many as 10 hours. The first photo shows tourists in 1898.
Pulpit Terrace is located in the Mammoth Hot Springs area. The first two photos date from 1905 and probably record the first ever camera wave.
