This page is from George Sternberg's personal photo album. There are four black and white postcards on the album page. The two on the left show Indigenous Americans and the two on the right advertise the tourist trap called Indian Burial Pit near Salina, Kansas. The Indian Burial Pit was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1964. The State of Kansas purchased the site in 1989, and in 1990 the pit was filled with clean sand and covered with concrete after the Pawnee Indians held a funeral in which they covered the remains with blankets and shawls. The area was re-vegetated with grass and surrounded by a fence.
