Vintage and very popular booklet from the early 20th century for tourists to use as they toured Yosemite National Park. Based on a penciled inscription on inside cover, appears to have been owned by Nellie Van Ness who was married to a famous train robber. The guide describes sights to see and places to eat, and places to lodge. The fold-out tissue paper map is intact and in great condition. With the advertisements for hotels, a delicatessan and ice cream parlor, and a "Pioneer Photographer" studio makes this a true time capsule.
