Friday Photo: Evelyn Cameron

In celebration of Women's History Month, here's a famous photo of a famous Montanan.

From Montana Views. Original in Montana Historical Society Photograph Archives, PAc 90-87.273

Evelyn Cameron posed on her horse, Jim, for this self portrait. Cameron is known for the wonderful photos she took documenting ranch and homestead life in eastern Montana around the turn of the century. I'm hoping to follow her lead and spend some time on horseback this weekend. I intend to stay seated, though.

P.S. Check out Cameron's album of personal photos, including pictures of herself as a young lady in England and on her honeymoon in Montana with her husband Ewen.
P.P.S. Remember these daring riders?
