Large Mounted Albumen Photograph, 7-1/2” x 4-1/2” showing a que line of +/- 50 Native Americans with period manuscript ID on the reverse, “Ration day at San Carlos”. Also carries the phographers imprint, A. F. Randall, Los Angles. San Carlos was an Apache reservation in Gila County, Arizona Territory. The image is accompanied with a 2007 statement of provenance dating the image to her great grandfather who had a trading post and served as postmaster 1886-88 on the reservation. The San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation, in southeastern Arizona, United States, was established in 1872 as a reservation for the Chiricahua Apache tribe as well as surrounding Yavapai and Apache bands forcibly removed from their original homelands under a strategy devised by General Crook of using an Apache to catch an Apache. Also known as "Hell's Forty Acres" under United States occupation because of deplorable health and environmental conditions. A. Frank Randall was born March 2, 1854 in Massachusetts. Little is known about his early years, but in 1883, he accompanied General George Crook's expedition as a newspaper correspondent and photographer in the campaign to capture Apache Indians in Mexico. For the next four years, Randall traveled around Arizona and New Mexico photographing various Apache tribes, including the Chiricahua, Warm Springs, Mescalero, and Jicarilla Apaches. In 1887, Randall moved to California and spent his final years in Alameda County, where he died of a heart attack on March 4, 1916.
