This is one of the earliest Minnehaha Falls images that I have ever seen.
It is a carte de visite (CDV) and looks to date from the early 1860s. There is no photographer information on the back of the image. The front does have "Minne ha- ha-" in period pencil.
The image shows two men and a child on a wood bridge. The bridge construction or style may help to nail down a specific date on this image.
