Not so much of a mystery photos

These photos were taken by Margaret Godfrey Jarvis Overson in about 1920 or before in St. Johns, Apache, Arizona. The notations along the side of the photos is on the original negatives. These were scanned from the collection of photos I am presently scanning for preservation.


  1. Is that a bear in the first photo? Or at least a bear head? Maybe a dog that moved a bit during the photo? It looks like a bear to me though.

  2. It certainly looks like a bear, doesn't it?

  3. Many of the children in that photo are in costume, so I assumed that was also a costume.
