Angeline Seattle died in 1896 and was the last of the direct descendants of the great Chief Seattle for whom Seattle Washington was named. Angeline—Princess Angeline—as she was generally called, was famous all over the world… Angeline was a familiar figure of the streets, bent and wrinkled, a red handkerchief over her head, a shawl about her, walking slowly and painfully with the aid of a cane; it was no infrequent sight to see this poor old Indian woman seated on the sidewalk devoutly reciting her beads. Seattle photographers imprint on front. Appears to be a period ink ID on reverse. A comparison photogravure (not included) is shown taken in 1896 by Edward Sheriff Curtis famous for his photos of western Native Americans. Rare.
