Album 16: New Hampshire and Western Massachusetts Views by Henry Peabody
Description:
This album contains one hundred one 8 x 10 inch prints (including some platinum toned) taken by Henry G.

An index accompanies the volume, which includes views of scenery, river valleys, boating and boathouses, college campuses, public buildings, historic landmarks and structures, canoeing, and haying.

The pictorial quality and documentary quality are superb.
