Yosemite Nature Notes 38 (1959)

First photograph taken in Yosemite Valley of Yosemite Falls at 10:30 a.m. June 18, 1859 by Charles L. Weed
First photograph taken in Yosemite Valley,
by Charles L. Weed, in June 1859
. The
original photograph has since been lost,
so only this half-tone from YNN survives
(further information).

1 James Eason, Bancroft Library, gives this information about the lost first Yosemite photograph (11/2008):

Mary Hood states, (in YNN v.38, no. 6 (June 1958), the issue that reproduced the image,) that the photograph was found in the Vance Album at Stanford University, and was not present in the Rosenblatt album formerly at the Yosemite Museum. While, most unfortunately, it seems to be true that the photo is “now lost”, it was not lost from the Yosemite Museum collection, nor from The Bancroft Library which now holds the Rosenblatt album views.
