From Lewis Clark's basement stash. Descent following Thunderbolt first ascent. Envelope dated Aug 13, 1931. Negatives in sad state.

How many films did you find in Clark's stash? I have heard that he shot a few.

I have never tried to make a count but easily in excess of a thousand. Contact prints, negatives, glass lantern slides. This stuff goes up through 1938 or so. Everything later is at the Bancroft Library where this will eventually go. Slowly working my way through them as time permits.

Stonefly, great stuff (and a great find). Thanks for sharing. Even then poor quality stuff is gold.

BowDag, thanks for the photo of Tom Gerughty, he was a friend, knew him back in '69.

About the heavy packs, they were common back then. I have a book YOSEMITE AND KINGS CANYON TROUT by Charles McDermand. (A great read about Sierra Trout fishing in the 1930's and 40's.) In the back of the book, he gives his food and gear lists for 10 day-two week trips, and it came to about 80 lbs. Back then, they packed in heavy, bulky stuff; fresh eggs, bacon, a canned ham, a hatchet, it all added up. They were real men.

Thanks for an excellent share, man!
Not very many photos shot by Norman that I am aware of...very special.
Cheers
