Snapshot circa 1930 of a Folk Art carved totem pole. Reverse indicates the photo was developed at Kodak Finishing on Broadway in Oklahoma City. Ed Galloway's famous Totem Park was some 100 miles from Oklahoma City in Foyil. It is said he began his totem pole around 1937. Could this have been another Oklahoma carver? Or an earlier photograph of what became his environment? Like this picture, Galloway used fish and "goo-goo" eyeballs as well.
