Rare Photographs of Yosemite Valley from 1910

Roughly 105 years ago, a guy and his family embarked on a summer holiday adventure. They started their journey to Yosemite Valley from Fresno, CA. He documented their trip and pasted his photographs into a little photo album. The first page of the album says "Views of Yosemite Valley and Trip, July 1 to 26th, 1910, Photos by CK Wakefield". These photographs recently published on Imgur by TetsandSass.
