Mr F. L. Putnam stated that when he was a boy his family camped every year at the opposite end of Devils Lake N. W. of Fort Totten, and that the Indians came from the reservation at Fort Totten and from Fort Berthold and held games and dances at the "other" end of the lake. The pictures were taken by his mother, Clara Putnam, who developed the plates herself. Mrs Clara Putnam was the wife of T. N. Putnam, who owned a lumber company in Carrington. Mr F. L. Putnam stated that other photos in the Putnam collection show buildings and scenes in Carrington, and some views taken in California in 1893 and at the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893.
