[7-8] [Sela Clarence Walker, Gustavus Fagersteen who also worked alone in Merced, Yosemite
Valley, Madera, & Fresno, CA, 77-88; no other
ref. to Walker found in CA] "Photographers &
Publishers"; issued "Photographic Views of
Yosemite and Mammoth Trees", Yosemite area on
RMs. Relationship unclear, both Walker and
Fagersteen served as assistant photogs. for J.J.
Reilly; many instances their cards are merely
Hazeltine mts. & images overprinted "Successors
to M.M. Hazeltine, Photographed by Walker &
Fagersteen"; most likely scenario is that
original negs. were taken by Reilly, Fagersteen,
Walker, or Hazeltine and that through a series
of business arrangements the views were pub. by
whichever photog. continued to live in Yosemite;
the negs. or possibly a large stock of prints
were then taken over by Walker & Fagersteen;
later Walker left and Fagersteen rubberstamped
the remaining stock.
