Carleton Eugene Watkins

Carleton Eugene Watkins, preeminent photographer of the American West, photographed the Comstock during its greatest "boom" period, in 1876 and 1878. Watkins is best known for his photographs of pristine landscapes, but he was equally adept at capturing industrial subjects. Thus, he was well-qualified to capture the varied terrain of Nevada, from the forests of Lake Tahoe to the mountainous Virginia City.
