Dodge and Thayer families vacation album

PC009.258 (RS183540)

Description

A photograph album including fifteen prints. The album is not dated, but the photographs appear to be from the early 1900s. Most of the photographs were taken in the White Mountains, including photos of Mt. Willard, Mt. Lafayette, Ammonoosuc Lake, the Flume gorge, the Profile House hotel, and the Crawford hotel. The album also includes an interesting photograph of haying on Boston Common. Other images include the interior of a church in Chestnut Hill, Mass., Plymouth Rock, the surf on the Nahant coast, and a living room at 39 Union Park, possibly in Boston, Mass. The first photograph in the album is labeled "Dodges & Thayers," which may indicate that it is a vacation album of the two families. Other photographs identify an individual as E.T.D., which may be E.T. Dodge.
