Isaac Davidson, a premiere photographer of the Pacific Northwest region, published an extensive series of photographs documenting the scenery and rural communities of Oregon, Washington, and Alaska. Contracted under the name "Schuster & Davidson," Davidson documented the building of the railroad by the Northern Pacific Railroad Co. in the mid 1870s.
