|Reprinted from my 1979 negative, March 7, 2014|
The book I had with me was bought at an Yosemite Falls gift shop in May 1978, and I just now looked at it again. Ansel wrote the date (bless him) 9-9-79. Perfect documentation. The day was an overcast Sunday afternoon, a little after 4. I don't think I forgot a thing about that afternoon.
The first printed picture is shown below, you can see it's much smaller than the one I received the other day, first in this post. In addition, when I turned it over I saw it could be used as a post card! Guess that is what they did in 1979.
