Held in the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, with the comment “…George Barker moved to Niagara Falls, New York, in the early 1860s and eventually earned fame for mammoth-plate photographs that viscerally conveyed the scale and sublime nature of the falls. Adding a bit of his own artistry to nature’s handiwork, Barker frequently printed dramatic clouds from a second negative.” Also held in National Gallery of Canada.
