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. Also included are images of New Hampshire locations and panoramic images of the Connecticut River Valley seen from Mt. Holyoke and places in the Berkshires. The pictorial quality and documentary quality are superb.
