These vintage photos of Yosemite National Park are incredibly cool
Yes, Yosemite National Park was designated by an Act of Congress on Oct. 1, 1890, making it the third national park in the United States, after Yellowstone (which happened in 1872) and Sequoia (1890). This was truly the birth of the national park concept, since this was the first time in history that land was set aside purely for preservation and recreation for all people.”Here are those photos:A decal for the Yosemite Falls in Yosemite National Park, California, from 1955.
