Photo-Finish Friday -- Arapaho Camp

This photo of an Arapaho Camp circa 1870 was taken by William S. Soule (from the National Archives and Records Administration, ARC Identifier: 518985) and is now in the public domain. I ran across this stark photo while doing some research for a novel with my character Cash Laramie who was raised by Arapahos.

The Northern Arapaho Tribe website can be found here.

PFF is the creation of Leah J. Utas.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Leah, I saw this pic and felt like having a different kind of photo for PFF. Glad you liked it.

David, Going well but slow. Editing and preparing ROUND ONE takes priority.

Cloudia, You bet.

Chris, It has a contemporary look doesn't it?

Reb, You're welcome.

What would they think of our world and how astounded would we be by 1870
