One of many views created by Ralph Eddy, an Oregon City postcard photographer who traveled throughout the state of Oregon to capture images familiar to tourists of his era. The subject is of course Wizard Island in Crater Lake. The island is a comparatively small cone created in a volcanic flow as the main Mount Mazama worked to reconstitute itself. It was named in 1885 by Will G. Steel because of its resemblance to a sorcerer's hat.
