California's first great artist, photographer Carleton Watkins, is best known for his pictures of Yosemite Valley. This picture, however, shows Cape Horn, Columbia River, Oregon. The albumen silver print was included in the show "Dialogue Among Giants: Carleton Watkins and the Rise of Photography in California" at the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles.
