Description

This page is from George Sternberg's personal photo album. These black-and-white photographs were captured by George Sternberg in 1913. They show the rock formations, plant life, and fossils in the Belly River formation and the badlands. He does not specify whether the badlands€ he mentions are in reference to the Badlands National Park or if he is using badlands€ in reference to the style of outcrop. Therefore, these photos could have been taken either in South Dakota or in Canada, where he took photos of the Belly River formation. Sternberg handwrote a short description in cursive underneath each photo. Each photo shows a different aspect of the formations in the Belly River and the badlands.
