[Photographs]: Sixteen Images of a Fishing Camp. Circa 1905

Circa 1905.

Price: $350.00

Sixteen gelatin silver photographs. Rectangular Images approximately 4.5" x 3.75" each mounted on a slightly larger thick card with gilt edges. No backmarks or captions. Some soiling on the mounts, some modest rubbing and scratching on the images, three are a little worse than the others but all are very good and clearly viewable. Nice images of several men, mostly wearing caps and pants held up with suspenders, in a fishing camp and surrounding scenes. Most of the images are in the lakeside camp with two large tents, with a central table with stools or trunks used as chairs. The men are shown eating and drinking, one in a row book, cutting wood, washing pots, a few are of fish hanging outside of tents or in the camp. No identification of place or the people but the scenery seems to be from the Northeast - perhaps Pennsylvania or New York state, the caps seem consistent with those associated with German or Northern European workingmen.
