Photograph album of John Wesley Powell's Second Colorado River Expedition, containing photographs by E. O. Beaman, James Fennemore, and John K. Hillers. The first 118 photographs are attributed to Beaman, and depict the start of the expedition at the Green River Station in Wyoming, and the journey through the Red Canyon, Brown's Park, the Lodore Canyon, the Canyon of Desolation, the Cataract Canyon, and Salt Lake City, Utah.
The next set of photographs in the album was probably taken by James Fennemore, showing views of Powell's expedition after his departure from Salt Lake City. They illustrate the journey from the mouth of the Dirty Devil River down through Glen Valley, Nevada.
Finally, there are several views of the Marble Canyon, the Grand Canyon, the Green River, the Virgin River, the Sevier River, Pine Creek, Kanab Creek, and a series of portraits by Hillers of Paiute, Ute and Pueblo Indians. Portraits of Hopi and Zuni Indians were probably taken by Beaman.
