Comments

This postal is a photo of George Mahatch, locally known in Crescent City as Matches. His Indian name was Ma'ach, from his natal village of Ma'ach on the southeast shore of Big Lagoon. His house in the new town of Requa is shown in #99. #13 is a contact print from a part of a glass plate negative taken by A. W. Ericson: the original plate survives in the Humboldt County Collection at Humboldt State University Library, where it is probably the Ericson Collection #E19, although it might be the nearly identical Ericson Collection #A31.
