Inter-State Picture Service - Montana


The Airstream is packed and ready, just in case we have to make a speedy exit due to tropical storm Colin. In the mean time the dogs and I are entertaining ourselves by going through boxes of old photographs.  Todays find - a picture set of 18 images from the Inter-State Picture Service. Today Inter-State Pictures is probably best known for all those school photographs that our taken the beginning of each school year. But evidently back in the day they also did travel and park images. 

Beartooth Lake and Butte

This little gem was in perfect condition and has 18 wonderful sepia toned infra red images shot around Red Lodge-Cooke City in Montana. According to the handy insert: 

"Infra red - the latest development in photography - is particularly suited for mountain scenery. The faculty of long range, clearity through fog and mist, and sharp color contrasts make it sensational!"

Cooke Ranger Station - Northeast entrance to Yellowstone

Virgin forest near Pilot and Index Peaks.Today Red Lodge is busy and serves as a hub for outdoor recreation such as hiking - with the northern starting point for the Beartooth Highway Scenic Drive located nearby. During the winter months, Red Lodge is a popular resort area with many skiing opportunities.
