The Chicago Daily News's photographers kept watch at Chicago's railroad stations for scenes of interest, and in addition to taking pictures of celebrities, sometimes caught images of American Indian travelers. For example, a family of Cheyenne Indians set down their valises and posed for the camera around 1907 (DN-0004922, DN-0004923) and in 1909 a group of Sioux Indians lined up for the photographer (DN-0054190, DN-0054189). In later years, the newspaper's photographers continued to expect the public to be interested in American Indians pictured in native dress. In 1929, the photographers persuaded a group of Blackfoot Indians to pose on a rooftop (DN-0088096, DN-0088094). Click on Image
