Many of the photographs in this gallery were the work of Timothy H. O’Sullivan. Photography was very different back then, requiring a darkroom to avoid overexposing pictures while negatives were being developed. For this reason, O’Sullivan traveled the West in his Darkroom Wagon, a special mobile photography studio, which can be seen in this picture.
