Magnificent image of Mount Rushmore under construction

Exceptional matte-finish 7.75 x 10.25 photo of workers rappelling the face of George Washington while carving Mount Rushmore, signed in the lower right in fountain pen, “Official, Gutzon Borglum.” In fine condition, with irregularly trimmed edges (trivially affecting the paraph below his signature). Originates from the estate of Camille Yuill, who was the city editor of the Deadwood Pioneer-Times, and had met and befriended Borglum when he first visited the Black Hills; he presented her with this signed photo circa 1938. Unquestionably the most desirable subject for a Borglum photo. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
