Arthur Pillsbury? George Fiske? Burton Frasher?

Three identical photographic paper postcards mailed between 1926 and 1946.  Probably Arthur Pillsbury but could be any photographer.  They got a lot of use out of this negative showing Half Dome in mid-morning from Glacier Point.  One of the postcards mentions that the writer is staying at the hotel on Glacier Point.  That hotel was built in 1916-17 and burned in 1969.

Update:  I can't believe I missed seeing the hotel up on Glacier Point.  First trip to Yosemite in 1973.  Should have gone in the 60s, when I was a child.  I think I need one more of these.
