Description

An album consisting of seventy-two black-and-white photographs of the Crehore family. Most photographs were taken in Newton Lower Falls and at Rangeley Lake, including one photo of the family home in Chestnut Hill in 1920 and the Sweet family home (known as the Hap Carter home) in Honolulu in 1847. The photographs include family groups, summer and winter views of a house and grounds in Newton, and interiors and exteriors at the Rangeley Lake camp. The Rangeley Lake photographs depict bird hunting, fishing, horseback riding, and sailing in the 1920s. Also of interest is the photograph of a three-wheeled velocipede (photograph 15). Also included in this album is a photograph of Agnes Scribner, whose sewing machine is in the Historic New England collection. References to the Crehore home in Chestnut Hill can be found in "Brickbuilder" vol. 22, no. 3, plate 48.
