An old Chemehuevi Indian man smoking, ca.1900
Photograph of an old Chemehuevi Indian man smoking, ca.1900. From the lap up. He is sitting outside on a wooden stool or chair. He is wearing a somewhat tattered top hat, a button-up striped shirt over underwear, under a jacket, with trousers. His hands are grasped between his thighs. His hair sticks out unevenly at both sides of his head. A cigarette[?] sticks out of the center of his mouth under a large grey mustache. His head is tilted slightly up, revealing his throat, as he looks directly into the camera. Behind him some cooking implements (blurred) lay on the ground.
