I purchased a photograph by Haynes in a frame of Old Faithful Geyser #35921 which was located on the back, looks like it might be a watercolor. Was wondering how old it might be and if it is worth anything.

I have two etchings(?)that look like black and white pen and ink drawings of Old Faithful and Canyon. They are numbered and signed Haynes which were purchased by my grandparents in the mid 1940's. I have not seen anything like them in the internet collections. Do you know which Haynes might have done this and where I could find more information about them?

Black Hills connection
Posted By Dorinda Troutman on Jan 22, 2011
F. Jay (my great uncle), had many connections to that area. He had a studio first in Minnesota, and then just across the border in Fargo before and during the times he had a railroad car studio and a studio in Yellowstone Park (during the warmer months). He traveled extensively taking photos - all over the Dakota Territory as it was then: Dakotas, Montana, etc. He also took a lot of photos of Oregon, Washington and Alaska. Dorinda
Very interesting could you answer my question

Why would Mr. Haynes be in the southern part of the Black Hills of South Dakota in the late 1800's? Hot Springs area. I found a photo that was taken by him that I figure was dated 1887-1888. It is hanging on the wall of the South Dakota States Veterans Home. It was built in 1889 Thanks for looking Sandy
