This highly detailed view of Snake River Canyon is recreated from an original glass positive by George Weister, one of the best-known landscape photographers of his time. I'm assuming that the "Twin Falls" in the title is the town, not the waterfall, which is several miles further upstream.

Thus the vantage point is likely somewhere near the Perrine Memorial Bridge. If you can help describe this location more precisely, please let me know. In any event, it is a striking photo created shortly after the founding of the town of Twin Falls.

-- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
