Vintage Yosemite Camp Curry Firefall Poster Image Transfer Art Block National Parks Poster

The Yosemite Firefall was a summer time event that began in 1872 and continued for almost a century, in which burning hot embers were spilled from the top of Glacier Point in Yosemite National Park to the valley 3,000 feet below. From a distance it appeared as a glowing waterfall. The owners of the Glacier Point Hotel conducted the firefall. History has it that David Curry, founder of Camp Curry, would stand at the base of the fall, and yell "Let the fire fall," each night as a signal to start pushing the embers over.
The Firefall ended in January 1968, when the National Park Service ordered it to stop because the overwhelming number of visitors that it attracted trampled the meadows, and because it was not a natural event. NPS wanted to preserve the Valley, returning it to its natural state. The Glacier Point Hotel was destroyed by fire 18 months later and was not rebuilt.
The Firefalls were performed at 9 p.m. seven nights a week as the final act of a performance at Camp Curry.[1]


Each piece is coated with a high gloss spray sealer.

IMPORTANT:
If payment is not received within 3 days of sale, item will be re-posted for sale, unless other arrangements have made between myself and the buyer. i generally try to contact the buyer if payment is not received within the first day, but if i do not receive any sort of response or payment within three days i will cancel the sale and repost the item.

Returns & exchanges

i do my very best to photograph my work as clean and clear as possible from multiple angles, so you have a really good idea of what your getting. refunds or exchanges will not be accepted. all items are packed very well, but if you feel the need to add insurance to your order please add $3.00 to the shipping cost for the item. if an item is not insured, i cannot be held responsible for any damage incurred during shipping.

Shipping policies

all items are shipped form my house USPS Priority which is a 2-3 day service. if you feel the need to add insurance please add $3.00 to original shipping cost, but as long as your address registered on Etsy is correct, it should make it just fine. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR ADDRESS IS CURRENT ON YOUR ETSY PROFILE. i do not cross reference with the address on your Paypal account. i assume that the address on your Etsy account is the address you will want it shipped to. if for some reason you will want it sent to another destination aka as a gift or something, you will have to let me know ASAP. Lastly, if a piece is returned due to an incorrect address, you will be billed again for extra shipping costs so i can re-ship the item.
