Description

William H. Bell was the staff photographer for the government-sponsored Wheeler expedition of 1871–73, whose mission was to survey and produce topographic maps of the Southwestern United States. In 1872, he recorded rivers, canyons, and landscapes in Arizona and Utah including Kanab Creek canyon in the Grand Canyon. For a westward view of the same location, see Bell’s Grand Cañon, Colorado River, Mouth of Kanab Wash, Looking West (1997.130).
