In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

View from the north side of Cave Rock featuring its lower portion. Notice the silhouette of the Lady of the Lake in the formation and the one-way trestle bridge—the only thing that stood between “drivers and eternity.” Photo taken in 1911 by Harold A. Parker. Courtesy Special Collections, University of Nevada, Reno, Library. Cave Rock, “De’ ek wadapush” in Washoe, is the 360-foot core remnant of a volcano that erupted three million years ago. This view, from the west taken in the early 1900s, shows the main cave above and to the right of the trestle bridge, barely noticeable on the lower left of the rock. Courtesy Special Collections, University of Nevada, Reno, Library. Freight wagons pause for a photo below the main cave after the precipitous trip around Cave Rock in the 1860s. Courtesy Special Collections, University of Nevada, Reno, Library. View of Cave Rock from the south. Close scrutiny shows the first tunnel blasted through the rock in 1931.

Although Lake Tahoe had largely been privatized by the early twentieth century, Washoes continued to spend summer months there, often working for tourist resorts (note the Al Tahoe Inn sign in upper right). This photo from the early 1900s shows Captain Pete Mayo (fourth from left) and his wife, Sarah Mayo, with baskets. Captain Pete likely acted as a fishing guide for white tourists while his wife marketed her baskets. Courtesy Special Collections, University of Nevada, Reno, Library.
