The tenth generation

PC032.TMP.002 (RS557)

Description

Wallace Nutting staged this photograph in the parlor of the Warner House on Daniel Street in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. A model in period costume knits on a window seat next to the fireplace. Three large portraits of the Warner family by Joseph Blackburn hang on the wood-paneled walls. Captain Archibald Macpheadris built the house in 1716. Jonathan Warner married his daughter, Mary Macpheadris, and, when she died in 1776, Warner inherited the house.
