These are reprints from glass negatives that were loaned to Salida High School by Magic Lantern Photo for printing and filing in the school library as part of the Centennial History Project during the 1976-1977 school year. The project was operated by Lisa Hutchinson and teacher Dick Dixon. The photos are mainly natural feature shots in the southern Chaffee County, Buena Vista, and Chalk Creek areas. It is unknown what time these negatives were taken.
