Comments

Photo of the mouth of the Klamath River taken in 1913 by Hazeltine. The home base of Hazeltine is not known for certain: someone, possibly the late Mrs. Ruth Roberts, suggested that he was a Portland, Oregon, photographer. Note the floats of a fishing net running from the beach in the foreground out toward the mouth. Harry K. Roberts described this net pattern as a standard one when the Klamath River bar is sufficiently out to sea to be well beyond the "split rocks" in the foreground (Notebook XXXVIII:155). Close comparison of #16 with #17 shows them to be off the same negative. #16 has been printed light and #17 is printed dark.
